We are the only country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed without eating, elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment - yet we have a benefit for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies. Imagine if we gave ourselves the same support that we give other countries. I feel bad for them, but I wonder who cares about America.

    So very true! I wouldn't want to live anywhere else but here in America. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree and don't get me started on this topic. You hit the nail on the head with this one.

    This is so sad, but true for Canada as well. Sometimes I feel some of our homeless people choose to be in that situation and won't accept help. emoticon

    Sad, but true, but I do venture to say someone cares for us, without being as foolish with financial aid as we are to other countries. emoticon I am American and proud of it, despite some really ugly history and accountability. Who will do for us as we have done to others. Good reflection, MJ.
