Over 1 Billion Raised to Rebuild Paris’ Notre Dame Remarkable or Not?
According to Vox, “ more than $1 billion has rolled in to repair the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, a debate is raging over whether the glut of donations would have been better spent on other causes.”
Charity is a Blessing
It is amazing that so many people care about restoring the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. We need to have compassion for people all over the world. This type of generosity is a fantastic example of what global concern looks like.
Are We Really Paying Attention?
When we hear about catastrophic events around the world, do we equally pay attention to these events? Sadly…no. This is a problem. Is this why some people are outraged over the money pledged to fix the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris? Yes, Yes, Yes. Which makes us ask the question…do all people matter in this world?
- Sharing is Caring — Education is beyond important. It is a pivotal part of how we are alive today. When we can share news and information with each other, we can ensure that WE ALL KNOW what is going on. Share news, ideas, thoughts, feelings, and everything in between.
- A Crisis is a Crisis (No Matter Where It Takes Place) — When there is a crisis happening in the US, Africa, Australia, Europe, or anywhere else in the world, the crisis matters. It deserves the attention of the media and us (citizens of the world). Let’s not remain so engulfed with our local, regional, or national news that we forget to care about the world as a whole.
- Money Isn’t The Only Type of Support — Maybe you have money to donate to a cause. If so, great! Maybe, you don’t. If you have access to the internet and social media, you can spread awareness. You can volunteer your time. You could volunteer your services. Never for a moment, believe that only money is needed in this world. We all can help with matters in some way (no matter what)!
- There is One Race: The Human Race — We are all human beings. Regardless of the color of our skin or where we come from, we need to remember the importance of human life. If we take action with this sentiment, then countries and people alike should lend compassion and resources more equally and frequently.
