This is true. BUT if you haven't been doing anything to assist in that cause EITHER then what are you complaining for? A majority of people in the U.S. are homeless and hungry because they made some bad decisions in their life and need to get it together. There are the disabled or victims of circumstance, who make up the smaller percentage of homeless people, I'm just saying a MAJORITY of people in that position put themselves there (and I do donate to the Salvation Army and have helped strangers many times in my life, so yes I do care about domestic issues too). Haiti is already the poorest nation and they were minding their business when this earthquake hit. I don't see how anyone can be insensitive to such a massive loss of human life and destruction.
Maybe simply hearing about it or reading about it isn't enough. But right now THIS is what the people of Haiti are going through:
And THIS is what you can do to help (list compiled by google of all organizations assisting in relief to Haiti).
Also, please click here to see the population map of how the earthquake impacts Haiti.
I'm sorry but if anyone can look at this like it doesn't matter, then they have no heart or regard for mankind. Even if you can't do a lot, if a lot of people do a little- it adds up to a lot.
My thoughts and my heart go out to the people in Haiti and their loved ones who are also devastated by the loss and tragedy.
I would also like to share a song in memory of Teddy Pendergrass passing away yesterday, one which I think we all need to hear and appreciate.
Wake Up Everybody.
And Rest in Peace to those who can't.
