There is something about these cookies that won't leave me alone.
I watched this video about 10 months ago, and still, I keep coming back to it. These kids are happy -- happy! -- to eat a dirt cookie. It's not a joke, not a put-up job. The grownups, their parents, know better. They know the cookies are nasty, but there's nothing else to feed their children.
Today, I'm giving a brief "Mission Moment" at church, in preparation for an offering to "One Great Hour of Sharing". And as I prepare to make my pitch for donations, those cookies are very much in my mind.
