Shame on YOU, America....

"Shame on you America: the only country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed without eating, elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment - yet we have a benefit for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations."

I really can't believe people are posting such nonsense as what is above...

This is what it should really say:

Shame on the people who are only concerned about America. This is a WORLD created by God, not just a country. No wonder this world is going to crap, everyone only cares about themselves. Everybody is concerned about people in America not having this or having that. As a person created by God who created ALL things, we should not be so concerned with our own selves, but with those who are less fortunate. The standards that America deem poor are still MUCH higher than those of 3rd world countries such as Haiti. While America does have poor and homeless and orphans, they are taken better care of here in America than they are in Haiti.
Children who are in orphanages here in America actually get to sleep on beds each night and get to eat 3 meals a day and get to play with their friends. They get to go to the doctor if they are sick and they get to wrap up in blankets each night.
Children who are in orphanages in Haiti are many times sold as domestic servants and are often abused. Most of the orphanage homes are not inspected and they struggle to provide food, education and other necessities that are needed to provide for the children. Unless the orphanages are ministry ran, most of them are ran by child protection officers who are corrupt.
Haiti is the size of Maryland and food can sometimes be a rare find. Many orphaned children are fed rice for a meal and that is it. While orphaned children in America are running around playing with their toys, orphaned children in Haiti are sitting on dirt floors. They are drinking water that we wouldn’t even think about putting our hands in.
Many of the children that are in orphanages in Haiti are there because their family has sold them for money. That is how desperate the people of Haiti are. Selling children in Haiti is a bigger business than selling cocaine.

As God’s children, when we see a child, we see a soul. We see a soul that has been perfectly created by God for a purpose.
Shame on America for thinking we are so much better than the rest of the world. Shame on America for being self centered and not caring about the rest of the world. Shame on America for not doing the work of God as He has called us to do.
