I am a big blog follower. You could probably figure out everything about me by looking at my google reader lol. Among the many blogs i follow there are a couple blogs of young mums who write very sarcastic and humorous posts about kids, that anyone would love! (if you have a good sense of humor that is). Anyway, i follow some and from time to time they put up photos of their cute kids. I love kids and it makes me so happy to see kids having fun and being pampered. On the other hand, it reminds me of all the unfortunate kids in this world. The poor kids with nothing to play with or even eat, the abused kids with no one to hear their cries for help and all the other kids in between. Life is not fair but to know how unfortunate a kid's life is, it just makes it harder to ignore it.
Which brings me to people and their attitude towards poor people. I honestly don't understand people sometimes. They hear about people in dire situations who need help and all they say is," oh how sad", or at most, "we should help" but thats where it all ends. They're all talk and no action. Why do people think its enough to sympathize and pity people in need? ITS NOT ENOUGH! your sympathy and pity will do nothing. It really makes me wonder how people think! I'm in no way a great person but if i hear such stories it breaks my heart and i don't feel at peace until i know i have helped them in some way, even if it is just spreading the word. What frustrates me is that these people would probably agree with me that they need to help and such but they won't do anything.
I wish people could experience the satisfaction of knowing you have helped someone and made a difference in their life. I wish they could see a poor mother's tears of happiness as she realizes she can now feed her kids. If they experienced such thing then they would get addicted. It really softens your heart and opens your eyes to bigger issues and makes you realize you should be grateful for all you have because some people don't have anything.
I wonder what YOUR reaction will be after reading this. Will it be "yeah we should help more" and then you'll forget about it and not do anything? Or will you act upon this? There are so many people in need, and don't use the excuse of "but i don't know any, or don't know where to find them", if you want to help you will find a way. I know people who need help, if you really want to help ask me and i will hook you up with people who need your help. So are you going to pretend you didn't read this post so you don't have to help? LOL its up to you.
Thats all! Jya!
