I received a weird email today. It is a mass email. Short for considering spam if not that the sender is a chat buddy of mine from India. It has a title “Request assistance from Thailand : Nobody knows who this boy belongs to!” with an attached picture.
The picture broke my heart. I have kid, probably the same age has him. So I probably know what his parents feel — if there are still alive, for that matter — if this child is indeed lost and they’re running all around Phuket to find their child.
Consider this spam, a hoax if you will. But, what the heck, I’m posting it anyway. If this is a hoax, I don’t care. This picture is not altered anyway and he indeed is hurt. And who knows, if he indeed is lost, and someone, a relative perhaps finds it here, they will have hope that the child is alive.
Let’s pray for this kid, and all the rest in South Asia.
