It made me cringe the other day, a report on the recent riots in england (and I state in england...non to be seen in Scotland) stated that they rioted because they did not have anything or the things they wanted in life. Like big tv sets, nice trainers and fings to make them look good and have some street cred.
I am glad that the english courts are jailing these people, even the younger ones (the youngest I think was about ten) If these people think they are dis-possesed then they should look to east Africa and the famine that has turned up again. I saw a report of a young woman who gave birth to twins on the road to a feeding camp, she entered the camp with only one child, four hours later they buried her second child.
We in Britain are lucky enough to have a social state that will help it's citizens who need help (although it does not always work, but hey it's there) and we have a social concience to help those overseas who are in dire need of our help. Within 24 hrs of an appeal for help over £40 million was raised by the public for famine stricken Africa, our gov't matched that figure.
So the next time you see riots and buildings burning on the streets of england, or any so called first world country, feel no pity for them, go to the nearest charity box and make a donation to those in you mind are in greatest need. I would rather give £10 to a hospice or to buy medicine for Africa, or help some poor soul down on their luck than spend a single thought for these ungrateful rioters.
