Got perspective?

OK. I have a challenge for you. It has three parts:

1) Read some world news every day (I recommend Google news)

2) Set up your account to show you information about persecuted countries (say…Uzbekistan or Turkmenistan)


3) Pray every time you’re reminded about how blessed we are to be here.

Here’s a little taste of what you’ll find:

In a report issued on November 7, New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) said torture is “endemic” in Uzbekistan’s criminal justice system.

The United Nations Committee Against Torture has expressed extreme concern over allegations of widespread torture in Uzbekistan.

A third person has died after being tortured in prison, a human rights organisation in Uzbekistan has said.

Two other such deaths have been reported in the country in the past month, all linked to the same prison in the eastern town of Andijan.

Human rights groups say torture is routinely used against political and religious prisoners in Uzbekistan.
