Poverty causes child prostitution and sex slavery. But do we truly care? We read about them, sometimes watch these stories on TV; but does the story make the front pages? Do we do anything to help these people?
How many of us would stop by and help a person in dire need? How many of us would even dare to help one of these unlucky people or feel it was our business to do so? We drive in our air-conditioned cars and close our windows so we what's happening won't bother us in our safe cocoon.
We pretend not to notice anything amiss when we happen to pass by a crawling, hungry child. We watch in horror as children recount what horrible things they had to go through to be able to feed their hungry siblings, but we never do anything that would help these miserable lot.
For those in the more developed countries: have you ever donated to charity any amount to show your support? Have you, at any point in your life, given something from your heart to needy and indigent people? This need not be material.
You can share your time, your knowledge or your sympathetic ear; or are you one of those who shrug their shoulders and say, "Who cares?" and go on their daily, merry way? It is this apathy, which causes poverty to be low on the agenda of news agencies.
It does not bother you because it does not concern you. You can't understand because you haven't experienced waking up in the morning with a gnawing, hungry stomach. Poverty will be important news to you, only when you'll find yourself among these indigent people someday. Then - it will be real for you.
You must remember that life is like a wheel. Sometimes you'll be up and sometimes you'll be down. Why wait for poverty to become your own important news story? Be generous to help while you have the means. Help alleviate poverty by contributing in your own little way and by showing the news media that this is an issue important enough to address.
Your contribution maybe in kind or in whatever forms you can afford, as long as these are heartily given. You need not to be rich to do this: old clothing may help the homeless woman across the street; contribute to help feed the poor; or better yet, help all those whom you can recommend for a decent job. Teach a man how to fish, and you would help him for the rest of his life.
Poverty should always be an important news story to you and to the society in which we live in. Be concerned and make this your headline news. Don't wait for it to be knocking at your doorstep before you decide to help. As the cliché goes: "Ensuring the welfare of others is ensuring your welfare as well." When society accepts this, perhaps the problem will be given the media attention it merits
