Does anyone notice these things but me?

I hope you do not mind if I step onto my soap box. I intend to use this spot to voice my opinion. Now opinions are like brains, everyone has one, some use it, others don’t but the one thing you can be sure of is each is different, and this is a good thing. Gee! I would hate if everyone’s brain was exactly as mine. There would not be enough shoes to go around and my husband would be the hottest man on the planet, see, I told you this would not be a good thing! I hope to get your opinion on what I write because who knows, I just might learn something!

I was watching the TV the other day and I saw where someone in the US, someone famous/rich was adopting/helping/providing something for children in other countries and I thought how nice! Then I started thinking, what about the kids right here? Now I know we live in a wonderful, prosperous country but we have children right here that need help. There are children living in foster homes that need a permanent home. Why do you get all this publicity when you help another country’s children? Maybe if you got GREAT publicity for helping the kid down the street or across town, these folks would worry about our own children.

Please do not get me wrong, I think all children deserve a wonderful life and a leg-up but I was always told that “Charity begins at home.” We have children here that need our help, can’t we help them? Every child should be tucked into a warm comfortable bed at night, they should be kissed and they should feel cherished, guess what, you don’t have to go to another country, help the children you pass everyday.

Hmmmm…I wonder what will come to my mind next.
