I woke up yesterday only to hear about a tragedy that has happened to some. It is one of those I have something to say and will in the future, so it is also the beginning of a new category, “On News”.
So, I woke up, when many people there going to sleep in other part of the world, some buried…
I always decide to do something when bad things happen. This time I want to criticize the global effort to help Haiti people. I heard some time ago that there were plans to create a mobilized army that would get to any place in the world in 24 hours. But it took more for help to arrive to a place of tragedy – where basics – like shovels – were in need. In fact, 48 hours after the trembles help is only starting it’s work in Port-au-Prince. We should do better than that! We should have fast Concords at our disposal! Why don’t we?
Why, when I asked my friend whether he would want to be in Haiti, help, he said no, because he has his own issues?
Why is this formula true?
Earthquake + people + buldings = tragedy.
It’s not that different from this:
Forest + animals + earthquake = Earth
It is time when we have to say goodbye to those futures unfulfilled, people lost..
Rest in peace.
