You are either not realizing it or don't know. There are people dying everywhere, everyday, and have been for years and years and years awaiting for
help from when these happened at the hands of dictators and effects of famine and ecological disasters. Many are...STILL waiting...and will keep
We all have to wake up some time in our lives and it usually takes one incident like this one to upset us enough to do as you did here...asking when
we are going to help. Sadly, this is your wakeup.
We are not going to help...there are many, many such incidents happening and others we are not even aware of. We cannot police the world. Does it mean
we shouldn't care? Of course not. Does it mean our governments should jump up today and act on this new one? Of course not. There are too many. And
as its already been said...we cant police the world.
I felt your pain in your OP here as though youre are just now outraged by this incident enough to say so. Like it was the first one to move you.
We've all had those. You have to learn to move on, state your concerns and if anything positive can come of it...make your point and others aware.
This is good. But don't expect the world to act. They wont. All they may do from the comfort of their homes away from the strife..is enact something
called "SANCTIONS" against the offenders.
Recently a thread was posted about the famine in Africa and don't we care about all those dying. It was the first time this poster really realized
this was happening. We told them for some of us, we've been aware for over 50 years that this was happening and that it wasn't something new. To
them perhaps, but not most of us.
Sadly, this is another incident that is more of a wake-up call than a "call-to-action". Its not that we don't care enough to climb in planes and
boats and head over there guns blazing. Its that we do care. We cant save everyone or help with everything. Sounds cold on this Christmas Day 2013.
It is. Very.
I think it comes down to making others aware of these earth-shaking events against mankind. We need to choose those conflicts to support and which
ones not too. We cant do them all. We cant help them all. We wont send troops to them all. We wont sent aid to them all. There are just too, too many,
and new ones like the one you mention here all the time. They need help as well.
We lose a bit of our innocence when we realize this. Its unfortunate that we still have to worry about these things on this Christmas Day and in this
Hanukkah and Kwanza season. But....it a good thing we do.
Happy Holidays to all...
