Day 28: something you makes you really angry

America taking care of the world before taking care of our own needs.

America is now a country where we have homeless people go without shelter because we no longer need them, children going to bed hungry because we don't care to feed them, the elderly go to nursing homes because they are old, the mentally ill go without treatment because we don't care. Yet as a nation, we supplied Haiti, Japan, Africa (the list could continue forever) with food, water, clothes, tents, doctors and medical supplies. We send troops to Korea, Japan, Iraq, Haiti to police these areas while crimes happen here. Hundreds of adoptable AMERICAN children are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans. There are tons of feed the world's hungry children ads on TV, but AMERICAN children are going to be hungry and cold.

I agree that we should help the needy throughout the world, but I believe the old saying, “Charity begins at home.” Take care of our problems first, then donate to the rest of the world. After all, a lot of those countries ultimately resent the USA anyway, pull out, take care of business at home!
