If any of you were in the same situation and under the same circumstances as these Haitians, you would act the exact same way. Do not pretend any differently. If the people of Aspen, Colorado were cut off from food and water, eventually there would be riots and uprisings, just the same as anywhere else.
I can understand, to some extent, the idea of wanting to help your neighbour first, but try and think about the suffering the average Haitian has gone through in their life. A good number of people in the country have been reduced to EATING DIRT to survive ( Dirt Poor Haitians Eat Mud Cookies To Survive | HuffPost The World Post ).
I know we’re in the midst of a supposed economic catastrophe here, but your average “Joe Six-Pack” who got laid off from Ford in Flint, Michigan is doing FAR better than the majority of the world’s population. Far, far better. He’ll never die of starvation or get hacked to bits by a machete, no matter how bad things get.
If you’re wealthy enough to be able to afford a computer to log-in to this site, you’re doing extremely well in comparison to the rest of the planet. Stop bitching about Haiti already “getting your tax dollars” and dig deep.
