I personally think that before we ship a whole bunch of food and money and volunteers over to africa why don't we start with people in our own country...our own state/province....our own city/town. there is poverty everywhere. It's easier to start helping those around you. I don't understand why people don't understand that there are homeless children in their own country that they need to worry about. I say if and when you have succeeded in controling the poverty in your own city then go on to your state/provence ect. ect. unless of course you live in africa then you can start with africa.

Africa is not the only place that needs help, they just need a lot of it, but half the food that is sent over to them doesn't even reach those that are in need of it. there are so many cival wars over there that the civilians never even see that food. the war lords get it and hoard it for themselves. If you want to help out africa I believe that what needs to be done first and foremost is to round up all of the warlords and ship them to some deserted island where they can have civil wars by themselves. then it would be safe to deliver food to those who really need it.

If you don't agree that's fine with me. I can understand the veiwpoints of others, however, this is just my theory
