"In all the relations of life, in all the countries of the world, it is with the oppressed that it is necessary to live: those who are happy and powerful are ignorant of half the feelings and ideas of mankind." Camillo Cavour.
This quote reminded me of Kay Warren, who fit the above catagory until she visited Africa and met the AIDS victims and orphans. She was seriously disturbed and gloriously ruined, as she calls it. I have never known anyone who has visited the oppressed and impoverished that is ever left the same; I would almost call it a second work of grace if I didn't know better.
