Of late there had been too many things bothering me. There are just too many people suffering in this world that you have created. I’m getting frustrated of how little I can do to help ease the sufferings of others. Thus I decided to write to you.
See, to start with, take a look at all those natural disasters that you have inflicted upon human beings. Thousands of people died this year in Japan tsunami, and at least a quarter of them were reported to be children’s. How can you take away the life of innocent people just like that? Also earth quakes and floods seem to be your favorite activity.
Go the other way around the globe, and you see millions of children are suffering from lack of food and vitamins. They’re dying each day in hunger. They’re walking miles and miles just for a sip of water. Yet, at the end of their journey, you gave them no water. Do you know how cruel you have been?
If in case you gave them water and food, you put them through disease and sufferings. How dare you inflict cancer and other deadly disease on small children’s who won’t be able to sustain the pain? Of the two species, you put through woman into more sufferings by giving them extra bonus, such as breast and ovarian cancer.
You put in some kids into this world, yet millions are begging, forced to prostitution and child slavery. You deprive them of education and food, and you make the evils laugh louder by providing to their needs. For an example, money that is supposed to be channeled to Tamil schools in my country , is actually being channeled to the politicians bank account. Yet they live happily with the swindled money. What Karma crap are you talking about?
You also think it’s funny to let people who do not appreciate things; to have more. You give them more than they can ever indulge, why can’t you just balance out life for everyone out there?
Let me tell you.
You’ve got it all wrong. Ever since you took over office, your management style had always been wrong. You descended hundreds of Saints over the past few thousand years, to name a few Muhammad, Jesus, and Buddha. The world was at war, people were killing each other in the name of race, religion, caste, territory and money. Isn’t it funny that you thought that all this Saints will bring world peace? Do you know what happened? Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad embraced each other, while their followers were fighting with each other in the name of these very saints that wanted to bring harmony and peace to human beings.
Don’t you ever dare to question what I have done to help others! I’ve been taking personal responsibilities to help others on behalf of you. For an example, I spend at least 5 hours a day in my Facebook account, posting courageous messages about cancer such as this:
Apart from this status, I browse through hundreds of websites every day, save the picture of human sufferings and post it online and get my friends to Like them. They in return post it in their profile and get other friends to support them. We all comment on those pictures and feel pity; and mourn the loss of lives for the next 10 minutes.
I really feel sad of all this sufferings, every weekend when I head out to the bar to drink with my friends; we usually talk about this for the first 15 minutes. And when we get really sad, we had to just drink more to calm ourselves. You know, while on the beer, we brainstorm each week on how to save money to help the poor. We’re still in the midst of planning though.
I make sure I don’t buy perfumes and doll for my girlfriend all the time. It’s usually ONLY on her birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Friendship Day, Best Friends Day, Woman’s Day, New Year, and Christmas. Other than that, I only bring her out to eat and have a vacation. I spend so little for myself, yet when I see my balance at the end of the day, I don’t have any money to donate! Why can’t you just give me more money?
On another note, I’ve always wanted to donate my old books and clothes to the needy people, but I just do not have enough time. You just didn’t provide me enough time in a day! Look at my schedule; total 5 hours in Facebook, 12 hours sleeping, 1 hour studying, 2 hours with my girlfriend, and 4 hours for my daily chores. Can you see how busy I’m!
I’m getting tired with your lame problem solving skills. I need you to tell me NOW how are you going to fix this issues!
It is not the world that I need to fix, it is you .
This article, although written sarcastically, is an indication of how much time, energy and money we spend for something that is totally not worth it. We’re thinking by spending time doing ‘virtual’ charity in FB will benefit someone out there, but in fact it does not help at all. It does raise awareness, but doesn’t get things moving. We’re thinking that we do not have enough money to spare, but we can buy endless jugs of beer every weekend. We buy lipstick, watch, sunglasses ,jeans, shirts, phones, hat, shoes,bag, lotte, loseke , yet we say we spend so little for ourselves. We spend endless hours making out with our boyfriends and girlfriends, yet we say we don’t have enough time.
My concept of charity is very practical and doable. I’m not asking you to stop drinking, I’m saying why not spare the money of one bottle? I’m not asking you to stop smoking, I’m saying why not quit it for one day? I’m not asking you to stop buying Punjabi suits, I’m saying why not buy a slightly cheaper ones? I’m not asking you to stop making out, I’m asking you to
cum come faster so that you can have more free time. Its Deepavali month, I’m sure you’re going to spend money for tons of things, just allocate a little to someone in need near you.
You don’t have to be Gandhi , you can also drink and have Tonthi ; yet change the world.
