Tragedies

Tragedies. They’re all over.

From blacks being killed by cops, to rape,

Flint, hurricane Harvey and so on.

What motivates one, to give/support, one cause

over another?

Is it, identifying with the person or situation?

Does Race, play a part?

Is it, The time of year?

I don’t know.

But what I do know is,

I find it difficult to give,

when I haven’t taken care of home.

I find it difficult, to listen to the call to give.

To support people (I don’t know) and causes, in other states and countries,

When we have people, right here, in our own communities,

needing help/support.

Everyone has their reasons.

For me, it’s personal.
