2. People should help the people in our country who need it, before we go trying to fix the rest of the world. What about the kids who have nothing to eat everyday? What about those who come home to abusive household? What about those used as drug mules, and sold into sex-slavery? Why does no one see the amount of problems that this country has and try to devote time and effort there first. I’m not saying its an easy task, but it should at least warrant extreme effort. People see that sending a check in the mail every month to Africa is an easy way to help. But why are we always looking for easy? Even if it takes a little more effort, wouldn’t it feel even better and be morally just as good, if not better, to help that little girl down the street who’s being raped by her father everyday when she gets home from school?
3. People are seeing compassion as merely a social trend these days, it has nothing to do with what it actually is. People see “oh if i seem like i care about these kids, people will thing I’m such a great person. Here, let me share this page 15x on facebook.” NO, you want to be a great person, do something about it.
4. In relation to number 3, I’m tired of social trends and stereotypes. I’m tired of people doing things for the sake of making them look good. if you want to do something, do it because you feel its the right thing. not because of the people looking at you. I’m tired of hearing people worry about their reputation. do what you feel is right for you, help others, and do some good in the world. it shouldn’t matter how someone looks, if they have piercings, tattoos, if they’re black, white, or purple, if they’re doing some good in the world, and trying to make some change then WHO GIVES A FUCK.
Something to think about.
