Amazing isn't it how those with less give more,…...and the trapping of money,the more you have the harder you try to hang on to it,a little like an illness of sorts ..
Its not their fault really, its a life time of conditioning they have been given to be ambitious and "successful", to fear "failure".
no....it's a lifetime of being screwed over by people that you trusted WERE telling you the truth, and not trying to scam you.....for me, it was learning that the head of the Red Cross makes $500,000 a year just in salary, or the raggedy guy panhandling, fold up his cardboard sign, walk a block, and get into his 6 or 7 year old Toyota Camry and drive away, or a tip jar in starbucks, or my niece asking me for 1,000 loan, because she owed money to a loan shark, and then finding out she used it for a vacation trip...never got that money back, by the way

There's something wrong with people. The lack of Humanity is insulting. People have always been inherently selfish and self serving but it seems to have hit a new summit within this generation. Were this a smaller town, this probably would never have happened.
The deeper into a City you go, the less charity you seem to see, unless it's Christmas time.
