This ain’t about Haiti This ain’t about the Tsunami This ain’t about New Orleans This ain’t about the news.Why do we wait for an earthquake to shake the world and wake it up?The media shouldn’t be our medium to helping. Head to soup lines and theRed Cross without coming across headlines first. Lets cast our attentionabroad without a tragic broadcast telling us to. Monitor your surroundingsbefore surrounding yourself with computer monitors.Why do we wait for a tsunami to wash up our apathy?I don’t wanna hop on a soapbox to say this, but maybe we do need to cleanup our act. Kids starve on a daily basis covered in dirt, but we sweep themunder the rug. We shower ourselves with indulgence while others don’t evenhave clean water.Why do we wait for a hurricane to level our own self-interests? The average person spends 1.2 hours caring for someone else.Imagine the difference if we doubled that…instead of just letting peopledouble over from hunger pains. You don’t have to be Mother Teresa, justdonate time to helping Teresa who doesn’t have a mother.Why do we wait to help?Everyday someone is suffering who could use the change we collect in yourcar cupholder, the time we spend wasting on the internet, the canned foodwe never eat in our cupboards, the excessiveness we take for granted.Open your eyes and open your heart. And if you can, open your wallet andopen your schedule. This is MORE than just Haiti This is MORE than just the Tsunami This is MORE than just New Orleans This is MORE than just the news.
