What is the matter with us?

When the earthquake in Haiti happened everyone leapt into action to help. We heard about doctors and churches and celebrities rearranging their lives in a flash to do whatever they could physically or financially or simply to draw attention.

Pakistan has been in horrendous crisis for weeks now and we hear nothing. Millions of families have lost their homes to natural devastation. Children are dying by the hundreds every day from starvation and disease. Each of these children has a mother that loves him or her just as much as we love our babies. How can we turn a blind eye and deaf ear? How can we ignore this as humans? Is this because these people are muslims?

What is the matter with us?

Oh yes, one person. Angelina Jolie. Thank you!
