let your heart be broken

While the SBC-ers fight amongst themselves this week in Greensboro, there are children digging for the minerals we all use in the eastern Congo. A kid named Decu comments in the story that his father can't afford his school fees, so, "That's why my life is so hard." Decu is eight years old. It's an all-too-common knowledge of reality among Congolese children. I wonder if the Secretary will talk about that.
