I know my grammar is shit. thats why I draw stuff.|
I was driving around in sierra madre, keeping the rpms high to keep the noise up occasionally setting off the extrasensitive alarms on some dusche bags 100000 dollar car. and then
these little fucking girls had this sign they were holding saying "by the time you read this one child will have died from hunger, one dollar can save one life." the shouted at me and i blew them off because they disgusted me.
Now this is how I think. by the time I donate a dollar 6 or more children would have died. by the time the money gets to the location thousands would have died. by the time the food gets distributed even more would have died. now when the food gets distrubited how many kids would get the shit beaten out of them by some adult wanting a extra meal, Don't call me heartless this is the reality of it. If you pass out food to the weak the stronger individual will take the food. Gangs will take the food and only give it to their supporters forcing people to support them in some cases. even if that doesn't happen by the time my dollar gets processed into some space age food supplement then gets sent out to the asshole of the world where these people are 1000 more kids would have died.
this is what im getting to, if you REALLY want to help would hunger help it in your homeland first. many americans are for fixing other countries shit. hell it even says in the bible to fix your own shit before fixing others - "And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me remove the speck out of your eye'; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother's eye." -- Matthew 7:3-5
Those girls and the 50 other people in sierra madre out right now trying ot get donations should be less concerned about kids in africa and more concerned with the starvation and poverity in Los Angeles. granted the poverity here is no where as bad as africa's or the middle east or so but still its a problem in america thats slowly bringing us down.
maybe we always fuck up other places cause we can't see straight cause of our homeland issues?
I'ma go canyon carving.
