as we have more people waking up to the world problems maybe just maybe we can all see the other things that needs attending to.
15 Mar 2003 @ 17:39 by tochtli : i have asked myself those same questions
and, sadly, i haven't got an answer. selfishness? misunderstood patriotism? emotional calluses? maybe it's just because it's more confortable to ignore problems than to acknowledge -and solve- them. who knows. but, like shatki ma said, these are questions that we all need to ask, everyday. what should we do?

...in your immediate environment. It will develop. :-)

There is SO much in the world, and a person can realistically only do so much, no matter how much compassion we have. But do whatever you can. In America babies are also dumped and left to die. In order to prevent unnecessary deaths, hospitals have advertised to new mothers to leave their babies at the hospital, anonymously, and the babies will be adopted and no charges will be brought against the mothers.
There are children in India who are used by adults to beg in the streets. In order to make these children look more pathetic to tourists, the adult will cut off the child's hand or foot or arm or whatever. It's outrageous! What can I, in America, do about that but let everyone know, maybe set up funds, a program, to help street children and help them get proper supervision, and hope someone closer to these things can do more? There are many ways to help. There are people protesting all of these things, but again, there are only so many hours in a day, and so much a person can do. We must choose how we can best use our resources for causes that mean the most to us.

the incredible destruction of the african peoples goes somehow unnoticed. here is an interview with the african 'zulu' shaman 'credo mutwa' which may shed some light upon this mystery and help to wake some people up to what is really going on behind the charades being enacted on all fronts:
