Does God Grow Tired Of Us?

Never! But it is tempting to think so sometimes! Especially if you've fled from your own country not once but twice and are all alone. Which is what happened to the "Lost Boys" of Sudan. This is no fairy tale. This is a true story that makes me want to partner with some of them in 2008 for Cars 4 Kidz...IN AFRICA!!! What do you think?

Click play above to watch the 2 ½ minute YouTube preview or rent "God Grew Tired Of Us" at any video store. For those of you without high speed internet, here's a summary:

After raising themselves in the desert along with thousands of other parentless "Lost Boys," Sudanese refugees John, Daniel and Panther have found their way to America, where they experience electricity, running water and supermarkets for the first time. Capturing their wonder at things Westerners take for granted, this documentary, an award winner at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, paints an intimate portrait of strangers in a strange land. That need our help.
