When I wrote about women being forced to give birth at home because they didn't have a lock on their front door, so many of you offered to send locks. The problem is not of locks. If they had locks, they would not have doors to put them on. And if they had doors, they would not have walls to hook those to. The problem is Poverty. And the solution is as simple as alleviating Poverty. Sending locks may not be a solution, but the offer to send locks means all of you care enough to make a tangible difference in whichever way you can. Enough such people can, I believe, make a difference.
But while we look for solutions to Poverty, let us not forget the immediate suffering of people hit by man-made or natural disasters. People affected by political wars. People who are victims of terrorism. People in places hit by earthquakes, cyclones and volcanoes.
Do the Write Thing". I know we are all as generous as we can afford to be- now is the time to show it.
