So in the past 12 hours, I've seen people type and have heard people say things such as:
I believe in helping those people who help themselves. I will be the first to get out there and lend someone a hand if they are willing to help themselves.
To those people I say. BULL.
I'd really like to know how many of those people have taken someone to the er AND paid the bill. How many have allowed a homeless person to live with them. How many have helped out at their local homeless shelter. How many have spent one hour serving lunch at a soup kitchen.
I'm wiling to bet those numbers are VERY VERY VERY low.
You know how I know that? Because if even half the people who claim they are the first to get right out there and help someone actually did, this country wouldn't be in the mess it's in in the first place.
Stop believing the lies that only the lazy need help. It's simply not true It's nothing more than an excuse to justify your lack of action to help out. People say Oh well I would help those who need help if they were willing to help themselves but gee not a single one of the needy out there is trying to help themselves. Again I say BULL.
Open your eyes. The world is what you make it.
Just remember, what goes around comes around. Someday it may be you that needs the helping hand -- who is going to lend it to you?
