Where Did it Come From?

Today, pay attention to everything you buy or consume.  Do research on just five of those items and go as deep as you can to trace where it comes from.  For instance, if you buy a shirt and you see it is made by Gap in Vietnam, find out as much as possible about the garment industry in Vietnam.  Hold whatever it is you bought and pray for those who made it.  Pray for forgiveness for the injustices that came in bringing that product to you.  And most importantly, find a way to either not change the conditions of injustice so that your needs may be met without compromise.
