As I'm sure most of you now there is a lot of terrible and unfortunate things going on in the world and there are many people suffering in third world countries as victims of natural disasters, famine, war, poverty. It all gets a little overwhelming but it is still very sad. From the earthquake in Haiti and China to the floods in the middle east there just seems to be so may problems. So many people need help and protection and international aid. I donate where and when I can, I do care about the lives of these people but it is starting to get too much to keep up. Why is the support always left to be the burden of the middle class? Where are the Bill Gates and Ted Turners of the world when finances are needed. All hear about is how these people have more money than they know what to do with but still the burden is on the little people. Heck the Saudi Princes and Royalty are busy buying solid gold Mercedes and 200 millions dollar yachts while their people starve and die in the streets. How has it come to this point where the top 2% could not even care to send a few thousand dollars (what the probably carry in the wallet) to help those in need. The middle class can keep this up there is just too much.
What do you think about it?
