Step in and Step up Katmandu Nepal Asia Tuesday, January 9, 2007
I was having a conversation about a man about the Malnutrition problem in the world. The comment and I now know it is the prevalent comment, - They are doing studies on this already. -
Who? Where? This is crap, a burden shifting, and not true belief.
I am watching this Oprah Winfrey thing on CNN while typing, and Oprah has said, people need to - Step in - or - Step up -, there is a ridiculous idea that somehow there is something out there that is solving all these problems on the planet.
I believe she is right, everyone needs to step in, or stop up; I do not believe there is a money problem. The problem is everyone needs to get involved and make something real happen.
Giving money is almost an excuse to not do something. Writing a letter to your congressional representative or the leaders of Nepal, or Niger, or anywhere and saying.
Why are you not giving your people a retirement plan? Why are you not helping your retarded and helpless? Why do you not tell your people to eat vegetable and fruits?
What is wrong with you?
Complaining is action, but not to your group of save the world hippie dippies, dread heads all smoking joint and drinking a beer. But to the real decision makers who are doing something.
I remember my friend Jim, I saw him walking across the street in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He stopped, picked up a fast food drink cup, took it into his business and put in the proper trash bin. He did something; he stepped in and stepped up.
I on the other hand would almost encourage person in places like Thailand or Nepal where there is no way to dispose of trash to through in the face of the government. Say, provide a way to allow me to keep your city clean, help me, and I will help you. There is always a partnership between the ying and the yang.
