Brittany plopped onto the suede sofa. She munched on her chips and gazed zombie-eyed at the HDTV. Flipping through the guide and whined "man 200 channels and nothing to watch." she pressed cancel and soaked into the commercials.
"Do you really get clean water in America?" an African boy asked from behind the flat screen. Brittany suddenly didn't feel well and sat up strait. The narrator gave statistics about dehydration.
"Do you really get three meals day in America?" a little girl no older than eight asked this time. Brittany's hand (clutching a chip) stopped in midair. The narrator gave statistics about starvation.
"Is there really electricity in every home in America?" asked another little boy. The narrator spoke about solar power while images of happy villages flashed across the screen. Brittany didn't understand. She turned to her mother at the computer behind her.
"Mom those poor children. They don't have electricity or food or even clean water. Why don't they have to live in misery? Why do I? I have everything they don't. Yet I'm never satisfied. And they have nothing but seem so happy."
Her mother turned to face the TV "look there that's why. They are in touch with there faith in and outside of church. You go to church and call yourself a believer yet you never seek out his word and you never pray. Thatís what you need to be satisfied."
"Ok mom," Brittany pulled an old leather bound book off the shelf, turned off the TV and absorbed what she was really craving. The word of God.
