Americans tend to think only of America and who cares about the rest of the world
YEAH! Your RIGHT gail. They withheld money and told the tsunami victims they could go take a hike....Oh WAIT Americans donated over $480 MILLION which exceeded the amount pledged byu the GOVERMENT. Thats right, they GAVE of their own FREE WILL.
And as of 5:30 Thursaday Americans had given $5 MILLION JUST to the red cross! Its a SHAME how SELFISH Americans are...

Haiti is our neighbor. Its out of respect and common courtesy to lend a helping hand in time of need. Our country may be in debt, but there are ppl dead in Haiti and traumatized from what just happened. Donations are being sent from those that are willing and able to give (from the heart).
Its our own selfish ways of the American ppl that played such a big part in our debt, it seems a bit ironic that you'd want to continue that trend.
