-You: "...the loss of life at a pin factory should crush you like it does me.."
You are letting 1 incident "crush you"? Then you are way too senstive. We care...but it runs deeper than that. We cant change a thing or bring any or
We cared about 9-11, Sandy Hook, Japans Nuke disaster, Columbine, the Tsunamis (both), Earthquakes in Haiti and New Zealand, the Theatre massacre, the
1,00O's dying all around the world everyday from disease and starvation and human rights etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.
Wait another day or so...and right here we all will read about another devasting loss of life and too...something we can do little about except shake
our heads and maybe say a prayer or two.
There is the story of the little girl trying to raise money to help the Haitian Earthquake victims and help them rebuild and bury their dead...until
she heard about the Japan Nuke disaster...and then heard about the starving children in Africa...pretty soon....her desk was overflowing with
envelopes...not filled with money....but news clippings of more disasters, deaths, and urgent need for "immediate help" or everyone will die. She
looked at all of them spread out on the table and called out to her mom...."Mom? Im going outside to play!'
Yes, we care. But everyday it will be more and more. We cannot save...or police the world. Pick your battles and causes. The world...as a whole...is
helpless to stop any more of these things from happening. They will go on....and we have to....but we cant if like yourself...we let every one of them
