Everywhere I look it’s all about Haiti. What about America? Why are Americans so quick to dig in their pockets for another country, yet there are those suffering all over our own country? Have you ever looked into helping your own community?
Our economy has sucked so bad that there are families losing their homes and forced to live in their cars, until that of course is repo’d and taken away from them as well. Why not help them? I am so sick of seeing the tweets on twitter about Haiti. Call me heartless, I don’t care. I’m not heartless. I’m just tired of seeing Americans so quick to want to run and help those in other countries, while turning a blind eye to what is happening here in our own.
Whenever something happens somewhere outside of America there is an outpouring of support. Screw that. Help your fellow Americans. There is plenty to be done here. Focus on America.
What is it? Is it the recognition you feel you will get by giving outside of our own country? Does it make you feel better that your neighbor maybe starving, but you were able to help send a bag of rice to Haiti? Do you feel you are accomplishing more by helping them?
Sorry, not me. All of my efforts and focus go to Americans. There are so many children going without here in our own country….our country. America. Americans. Look around you! If you want something to do…do it here. Make changes here. When was the last time another country came running to our aid?
I guess this is what the starving children in America get……
