That's rough.

Kevin got a referral and a click that was rough for me to read.

The idea of someone half a world away beginning to come to terms with the violence of the place they call home, having exhausted all other avenues besides a desperate google search for help, only to find a long, eloquently written post which answers their question in a way that can be summarized with the words, "You're screwed" is unreal.

Perspective: recession, obama, hell in a handbasket, socialism, deficit, inflation, etc, etc, etc... But at least we don't have to worry about militants hacking our limbs off, or truckloads of 7 year olds gunning us down with AK-47s.
