Are we all equal in God's eye?
In March, I heard a lot of ignorant people saying that Japan deserved what they got with the earthquake, now that the Bible Belt of the United States has been ravaged by the worst outbreak of tornadoes and storms in nearly 80 years, the same ignorant fools are racking it up to "shit happens". Why is it that we as a species are so quick to judge one another? Why do we have to feel superior to our neighbor and one up them with a bigger TV, bigger porch, better car so on and so forth? I passed a convoy of utility workers and volunteers heading into the ravaged parts of Alabama yesterday. These are people that are dropping what they do for their everyday lives to help out their fellow brethren. Believe it or not, the same thing happened in Japan. We work better together. Our best shines through when we are united. Why can we not be united as a species, as a planet, creating a global society of good rather than hatred and spite towards people that may not have the same beliefs as us? I've donated to the relief efforts of both the devastations, I urge you to do the same by texting "REDCROSS" to 90999. $10 will be added to your cellphone bill, and you get the option to have your donation to go towards the Japanese or Alabama efforts. Do what's right by humanity, not by a few words man put on a page in a book.
