I am a Citizen of the World
I have long considered myself out of place and out of time. Just because I am Autistic I have decided that the reason I feel out of place is because I am a citizen not just of my country of birth, but of the world
I feel deeply for those who struggle not just here but across the globe. I hurt when I see the pain that other people are going through whether it is from natural disaster or through circumstance. I cant make the hurt stop however, what I can do is call for help
So because of this I want to call out to everyone. No matter what Religion you are be it Christian, Buddist, Muslim, Jewish or something else, we are stewards of the world. This even applies to those who are people of no faith. We are supposed to look after and protect the world and we have failed to do so.
So my call out is to everyone. What we are seeing in Australia at the moment is total devastation. Homes and lives are being lost and our first responders are doing the best they can. The Military is doing the best they can but they need our help. What ever you can do to help those affected by the Bushfires please do so.
Look at the red cross, look for things that can help these people who have lost everything, The trees and the environment that has been destroyed, the wildlife that could be extinct because of these fires. We need to do something to help everyone. We are stewards of this world and we are all human. I dont care about political views but we need to help these people.
I am asking for an urgent call out to the world both citizens, politicians and businesses. Australia has been hit with the worst bush fire which is showing no signs of slowing down. This overshadows the horrific fire that happened at Grenfell Tower and we need to help.
We have a country who have been devastated and we need to do something to help. We can not in good consciousness ignore the situation. We are in this situation because we were supposed to look after the planet and we are destroying it. This is something we cant take back, but, what we can do is rally together to help those in need now.
There has already been death due to this fire and it does not seem to be letting up.
To everyone in the world I am asking that you find a way to support our brothers and sisters down under.
I have already started looking into a way that we can support the fire fighters and have contacted the Rural Fire Service for guidance. Fundraising site to come. I have emailed the Australian Government to see what we can do in terms of people wanting to go over to help. I am one person but together we are a world community.
We need to help these people so what you need to start looking at;
1) Can you post anything to Australia to help support the first responders and survivors? Clothes, Food, Cash etc.
2) Lobby your politicans to look at sending military support;
3) Lobby organisation in the private sector for support; sending items of need out there; free flights for those going out to help; etc;
Lets do what we can, because what would happen if this was our country that was going up in flames would we not want people to help and support? Many people have died and others have lost everything they owned. Nothing can bring those things back but lets look at ways that we can help these people.
I will update you with my progress on getting support sent out there;
