pakistan, ferguson, and palestine
3 places thousands of miles way from each other each with citizens being murdered or severely injured for gathering PEACEFULLY in order to gain basic human rights.
this is happening simultaneously and yall still fuckin sleep???
Tell me what am I supposed to do about it.
Please, tell me. I’m listening. How am I supposed to help these three places, all of which are at least a continent and (in Ferguson’s case - an ocean) away from me, especially considering the fact that I can’t afford to donate money? How do you think that I should contribute and why should I be unable or unallowed to sleep? Why do I have to do my fair share of suffering when there is quite literally nothing I can do to help the people in Pakistan, Ferguson or Palestine?
I can be sympathetic. I can be understanding and informed. What I’m not required to do is force myself into thinking about fairly traumatising events that I can do nothing to change. I don’t feel the need to do that, and why should I? What is the point in me not sleeping and thinking about it when I’m too far away and don’t have enough money to help these people?
Will they feel better if I feel bad too? Will my worry help them? No. Then why would I?
What exactly is gained by someone else suffering as well, just for the sake of it?
