Random

This is a pretty random post but has really been on my mind the last week. So Sunday night I settled in for the night to watch me some Golden Globes. I do enjoy the award season mostly for the clothes. Well this year with everything that was going on in the world knew that there would be things spoken about the recent earthquake in Haiti.
When the show started I quickly noticed that most all of the stars were wearing ribbons. Obviously to raise awareness. Because that is what gets my attention...a ribbon fastened to a woman's hip as to no distract from her 40,000$ gown.
Well the awards started and I was really enjoying it. Then they had a couple of well known actors give a speech how we "normal people' could go online and give as much money as we could spare to help Haiti.
SIDENOTE....
I am not against giving! I do and will give as much as I can to the relief efforts for that poor country. My heart breaks for those people and what they have lost. I am especially saddened by the thousands of children without parents. I would take as many as they would let me if I could!!
I am though against....Actors who get paid MILLIONS and MILLIONS of dollars asking me to give money. If everyone in that stinkin room would give 1 million dollars of there "hard earned" money. They could completely re-build that country.
I think it was a Su'a Sister who said that the most political they got was waiving a peace sign in a picture (I have been dying to use that line), well that is me! I am not a very political person, but I was really bugged by this! So what I am really saying is....Put your money where your mouth is!

Brittany- I totally agree! I have been giving to the Humanitarian Aide through church, because I know they'll distribute it as needed, if that means Haiti or somewhere else. But I haven't mentioned anything about it on my blog, and I haven't donated to any of the organizations.

It isn't that I don't feel for them. It's not that I don't worry, or, like you, think of the babies without parents- or empathise with the parents who can't find their children. I don't want to look callous, because I'm not. I just agree with you.

AMEN! So annoying to be preached at from someone who could and does have the means to donate much more!
