15 million?

last night australia united and pledged 15 million dollars to help the tsunami victims of asia.

15 million dollars.

you know, those people have had their lives ruined and it makes me so unbelievably sad that i cannot cry. its like its too much, its unfathomable. its also unfathomable that australian have donated 15 million dollars to help. while this is entirely comendable, its also a little bit lame dont you think? it bothers me that we needed a massive wave to demolish six countries plus television coverage and a 3 channel live simulcast of a concert to raise this money for other countries when there are people here that are starving and dying on the streets and we just ignore them, walk past them, and mutter something about the stinking bums getting a job.

hey, i think what australia did last night was fucking unbelievable and is going to go a long way in rebuilding those countries affected by the tsunami. but i also think that we should try looking after some people a little closer to home as well.
