WHAT DOES IT SAY OF US?

WHAT DOES IT SAY OF US....

When with "pride"...

we boast of our "Christian" values

and then at "Easter"

we indulge because we can

afford to...

whilst there are still too

many amongst us in New Orleans

and the outer Parishes

who are still in need of food and

safe shelter.




WHAT DOES IT SAY OF US...

When we fund raise

to "preserve' the houses of the dead,

whilst there are still

too many who are living on streets

amongst homes with

TFW (Toxic Flood Water) markings...



still on them...

Their children playing on the grass

which has not been properly treated.

The poisonous vapors still in the air.



The houses around them still in a state of despair...



WHAT DOES IT SAY OF US...

Of our ethics, our morals, our values ...

our "humanity", when so many continue

to suffer, so very near us, "in plain sight",

whilst we indulge and play on this Easter Day?
