Well, hang on a minute. Since we're demanding sack cloth and ashes, then why doesn't anybody care that my dog caught a cold. What, are animals too lowly to care about?<br><br>Okay really. What I find insulting is that TB and those like him judge us through the very small peep hole into our lives by this forum. And because we're not weeping and wailing, we're accused of not caring. This sounds pretty dated, but how dare you. How dare you measure the kind of people we are because we don't flood this forum with what you expect to see. Did it occur to you that some of us interalize these things. Expressing deep sorrow may be a personal thing, so while you may be standing on a street corner, whipping your self for all to see, some of us keep it to ourselves or a close circle of people. <br><br>Glad your leaving TB. You won't be missed.<br><br>

What would be an adequate amount for you to not feel like we're letting them wipe their own @ss??? The money can get there faster than any rescue workers and equipment could... they can use the money to get that from closer nations.<br><br>

Well, more people that that have died in the genocide in the Sudan...and nobody has really posted about that either.<br><br>This really isn't the place where people come to shoot the breeze about human tragedy. I am sure there are other places for that.<br><br><br>
a little thought<br>I was going to reply (again) to some posts accusing me of not caring about the disaster with the tsunami. I decided it wasn't the best use of my time. Instead I decided to donate money to the American Red Cross relief fund (you can do it through http://www.amazon.com).<br><br>As my mom always says: People who talk are just doing that, talking. People who act change the world.<br><br>So anyway... here's a url if you want to make a real difference: http://www.amazon.com.<br><br>
Loc: United States
I saw that, but I'm going to wait a while and see if a different charity pops up offering relief help- I've not heard fantastic things about the Red Cross. Having in-laws involved with the fire department and emergency services, you hear a lot of ugly 'insider' things about these types of organizations...<br><br>

Things that you hear may or may not be true but at least these organisations are there attempting to distribute aid. There will need to be more than 16 billion spent before this event begins to look like being repaired. <br><br>
