Define Necessity

I originally saw this today on my FaceBook feed.  My friend Carol shared it on her wall, and I in turn shared it on mine.  But it’s so powerful  – and appropriate – that I decided to post it here too.

(Taken from Burning Babylon.)

I know no one really wants me to mention Christmas right now, but some of you are no doubt thinking about it already.  I love giving and receiving gifts as much as the next 15-year-old-in-a-30-something-body, but this year I need to change the way I do things; if not for the little boy in the picture, then for all his brothers and sisters in the world who need food more than I want all the stuff that clutters my house.
