I am very, very sorry that you are suffering. I am very, very sorry that your children are suffering, that those affected by the earthquake and tsunami are suffering. It is horrible.
However, that does not give you a free pass to take out your frustration on other people. No one said who cares about those children. No one. And to imply otherwise is, imo, unjustified. It is NOT inhumane to tell a bunch of people who 5000 MILES away who are panicking to stop panicking. Huge doses of iodine are not benign either.
And no where on this thread did ANYONE indicate that they don't give a damn about children outside the US. NO ONE.
I am sorry you are stuck there, I am sorry you have no way out. It is no one's fault that this happened. In a perfect world, we would be able to get you & everyone else out of there a few days ago. However, we are just single women on the internet, spread far apart. Taking out your rage (and rightfully so, I would be enraged as well if I was in your position) on us, while giving you a place to vent it, is neither productive nor does it do any good.
To say that no one gives a damn about children outside the US is extremely uncalled for. This is just not true, and it's a slap in the face to people who donate 10% of their income to relief efforts every paycheck, when they're barely even able to make the rent. We, especially on a place called Mothering, care for children everywhere and fight for women's and children's rights the world over to give people a voice. The US sends so much (I don't know if it's the most) relief outside of their country, has their hands dipped into so many pools fighting for those without voices who need help, I can't even comprehend it. Not that they are better, but because they can, they do. And people just begin to expect it while making. What would happen if they didn't? We should all try to reach out hands because these are tragedies that extend over boundaries, lines, and governments. We are all trying to survive on this little green planet, and when those around us need help it is our duty to help our neighbors.
And every on of us elsewhere in the world have our eyes on you right now, are aching to help you but there's no way we can get over because our governments specifically control who can help, so we do what we can from here, things that authorities say will help the most.
