Re: Tsunami Donations - Some People Care
Something I heard earlier today made a lot of sense.
Put the world into a neighborhood setting. The United States would easily have the biggest and best house that everybody else on the street envied. A crack house(not comparing Asia to a crack house, but it is a lower tier house compared to the mansion the US has) down the street burns down. All of the other houses help and contribute, but of course the bigger house contributes. OTOH, the other houses complains and grumbles because the bigger house doesnt pay as much as they should. "HEY US!, YOU HAVE MONEY, SHARE THE WEALTH".
I can understand some of these houses donating what little they can, because they are poorer nations, but there are some houses who arent as big as the big house, yet they have money and do not want to give. However, they expect the big house up the street to give up all their wealth to help the little crack house.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the tsunami victims, but I feel that we as a house have done our part to help the neighbors in need.
