I came in from a night out a while ago with a friend and I noticed that there was some sort of charity even for children in third world countries on tv. My friend was talking a lot as I was trying to watch it, and I eventually snapped at him because of this. However, after they showed footage of a very young African boy dying in a hospital bed and his dad screaming, I quickly switched the television off.
I complained about the footage to some people double my age, and they said "You can't really criticize it when they are trying to raise money for charity." Another added, "And some people need to see what the world is really like."
It frustrates me when people say stuff like this. Why don't we raise money for children who are victims of sexual abuse? "And here is footage of a 5 year old boy being molested by a paedophile posing as Father Christmas". Or how about this? "Women are raped every day. Here is a video, just incase you don't believe me".
