Man’s Best Friend

Apparently man’s best friend is valued at more than his own worth! What am I rambling on about? Well I was watching TV and there were 2 adverts running after each other. Both adverts were for charities and both asking for money.

One was for a dog’s rescue centre and the other was the NSPCC for the protection of children. Interestingly, the charity for the dogs rescue asked for twice the amount that the charity for the¬†protection of children was asking for. This begets the question, “Is the life of the dog worth more? Or is it that it really costs minute amounts to protect children (and as a society, we still don’t)?

Poverty in the US!

I saw this link and simply was shocked. Considering that America is known as the land of opportunity, a land of democracy and a land of freedom… you would not expect that there is need for a soup kitchen, let alone that 25% of people attending soup kitchens are children.

The advert shocked me. All I keep thinking is WHY? America is not a third world country. In fact it thinks of itself as the centre of the universe, and if they cannot cope, how can they expect other poor countries to manage?
