George Clooney Arrested: Comment by B. Ray Dinning, Attorney and Social Venturer

 

George Clooney on Sudan and Crisis in Africa

Call it a publicity stunt – but George Clooney put his life and reputation  on the line to help those in need in Africa.  Because of his activism more people know about the humanitarian crisis in Sudan today than they did yesterday, because of George Clooney’s arrest during a protest outside the country’s embassy in Washington.

Like George Clooney, I have dedicated my life to those in need in Africa.  My belief comes from my dedication to the service of God and to my beliefs from the Bible which tells us to care for the orphans, the widows and the needy.  So, like George Clooney, I, Brian Ray Dinning, will work to help as many people in need in Africa as I can – even if this means the loss of reputation, the loss of liberty or imprisonment by an injustice system or people or the loss of my life.  
Because some things are more than a belief.  Our great Nation and its Founding Fathers believed this to be true.  Nelson Mandela, the great freedom fighter from South Africa, believed this as well.  The care of the poor, the widows and orphans of Africa is a fight worth fighting for.  The life of a child is precious – whether in the US, Europe or Africa.  Hats off to George Clooney and his father for their convictions and sacrifice.  I only hope and pray that I can help the needy children and people in Africa with the talents, gifts and abilities that God has given me and I hope that others join with us in making our World a better place for all.
