AMERICA'S HELPING HAND

Updated on November 7, 2011

America seems to always be there to lend a helping hand.We've sent help to Africa and to Japan.We were founded by helping hands, so I guess its in our blood, so to speak.Helping others is what we stand for.This is how we became the great nation that we are.This same continuous help is needed by all nations if this planet is to survive.

The war-torn towns of Africa are appalling and the deaths are outstanding.This issue is baffling and so debilitating not only to some of us in America,but also to many citizens of Africa.

Japan's recent disaster has left several thousand dead and just as many are still missing.Soldiers have searched swamp areas and many piles of rubble.The acts of Mother Nature has left parts of Japan in ruins.

I'm proud to be an American and hope everyone else is too.As long as there is love and compassion I believe we as a nation will grow in strength and in alliance.To all that contribute there time,finances and physical labor I applaud you.This nation is grateful to you.God Bless you and God Bess America.

Every little bit helps

      Yes, we are there to help. It gives me hope for the world to see our country putting their best foot forward to help people. We as individuals can do the same.

      As your hub is written with warm passion, i would want to comply. But - reality is different.

      First, all the places America gives aid to are locations on our planet where America takes interest. That expression of interest is sometimes very violent, not at all peaceful. Read "Confessions of an economic hitman" by John Perkins and you will get a very different impression.

      Second - talking about money, actually America is hooked on dept dope. Within the last decade some 40% of household income is borrowed. May be not by you, but statistics show.

      Be patriotic, America deserves it, but the shiny stuff is off.
