Ok this might sound EXTREMELY cold hearted... but .... well..i\'ll post a status msg going around on Facebook.. that I honestly agree with :Shame on you America: the only country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed without eating, elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment - yet we have a benefit for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations and are able to raise $7.6 million. 99% of people won\'t have the guts to copy and...... repost this .

Your remarks are not cold hearted. I feel the same way. \"Charity begins at home.\"
