***Rant Below that you may not all agree with but I needed to get my feelings on this out***
Ugh, how do I have so many people on my Facebook that have no compassion or empathy for others? So many people that posted some graphic about how we shouldn’t help the refugees because we have our own homeless problem in the US including Veterans. Yet, I can guarantee 99% if not 100% of those people do nothing to actively work towards a solution to help the homeless.
These people are being terrorized. Their country is war torn. They have to be afraid of bombs coming down and ISIS raping and killing them. They have to leave everything they’ve ever known just to have the chance for their families to survive; for their children to live. I’m sorry, I actively work towards helping the homeless in my community, but even the homeless in the USA don’t have it as badly as these people do.
And of course, the ISIS as a whole is Obama’s fault! Because the guy has that much power?! Are you kidding me?! Again, I am just so angry!
Here’s my FB status from earlier:
I have seen so many people today post about how we need to help our own homeless before we help other countries. 1.) God calls us to help all in need for those of you that call yourselves Christians. 2.) You say we need to help our own homeless, but what exactly are YOU doing to help this problem? Or are you just saying we need to but you don’t actually want to do anything to help. It’s an interesting subject that’s coming up in the middle of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week. If you’re interested in helping our homeless but don’t know how, here’s a great way: Go www.fpmcwi.wix.com/familypromise and become a Club 180 member. $15/mo and if only 500 people in all of Monroe County pledge to do this, we will have Family Promise of Monroe County, WI funded for a year!
I haven’t checked yet, but I’m betting there’s no new donations to Family Promise to help the homeless.
