Just because you see the problem doesn’t mean you understand the problem. Carey Nieuwohf

We see poverty, but we don't understand the poverty mindset. We see disconnected families, but don't understand how they arrived here or how to help restore them. We recognize wandering souls, but are clueless on how to help them find their way. We can be part of a community in disunity and yet be clueless about the years of mistrust that brought us here.

Pointing out a problem is not the same as grasping the root cause of it. If we can gain understanding we can begin to find a solution. A drowning person doesn't need us to point out their lack of swimming ability. They need us to throw them a lifeline.
