Everyday Life Here in Russia
The other day when I was coming home from my Seminary Wives group I saw this man passed out on the grass. He was most likely recovering from a long drinking binge. The sad thing is that I see this pretty often here. The other sad part is that no one really cares or even does anything. I mean, what if he was dead? Who would know?
The other evening Jon and Josiah were outside and a drunk man came up to Jon to ask for the time. Jon says he was so wasted. Jon told him the time and then the man asked him if it was morning or night time. How sad.
There are days when I question how wise it is to be raising two boys in this kind of environment but I know that there are great lessons to be taught. The depravity of man is everywhere. Here in Russia it is all out in the open.....drugs, drinking, promiscuity, back in the States it is all done in private.
