Define ‘our own’.

Every day I see and hear people debating. Should we or should we not help refugees? Aren’t we in fact wheeling in terrorists? They’re supposedly very ungrateful and causing a wave of crime, rape and rioting throughout the country’s. We should help ‘our own’ first. There are plenty of people living right here that need our help. And all I hear are excuses…

I don’t understand. I truly don’t understand the reasoning behind NOT wanting to help. It’s absolutely gutless. There are people dying. Children starving. Refugees being treated as if they are wild cattle. How can you live with yourself if you’re one of the people who turn their heads?

And then you have those who claim that ‘our own’ people need that attention and care. I agree there needs to be progress. But that doesn’t only apply to the people already living in this country. Are we having to endure days at sea in order to escape from war and hoping for a better life on the other side? No! Do we have to bury our children, our parents, our friends because of war? No! Do we have to leave everything behind? No! Ãre we being treated as animals, whom aren’t worthy of proper care and safety? NO!

We live in one of the most wealthiest country’s in the world. How on earth can you claim there isn’t enough for those who need it? Or even worse.. there IS enough but it should be spent on ‘our own’. Really? Aren’t we all humans? Don’t we all have the ability to feel? Don’t we all have a soul? Are other lives actually worth more because they already live here? NO!

WE SHARE THIS PLANET. WE ALL LIVE HERE. THERE ARE NO BORDERS TO MOTHER EARTH. WE CREATED THEM. WE CREATED WAR. WE CREATED REFUGEES.

Step up. They went through absolute hell. Can’t you see? They aren’t the problem. We are.
