Dear Congress,

Is there any reason in particular that you cannot get this passionate about the problems we face in our own country?


Five members of Congress arrested at Darfur protest


I do not begrudge you the right to protest that which you feel is wrong. I do not ask you to stop believing that those less fortunate deserve your help. I only ask that you look to your own country and to your countrymen, women and children. There are more than enough less fortunate here to warrant your outrage. The numbers are growing by the day due to Congressional/Presidential actions.

You are elected on faith by those that believed you would do what you promised. Have you? I certainly hope that the current issues facing our nation are not what you promised and that you do indeed intend to get equally passionate about the injustices on the homefront as you are about those that are not so close to home.

However, I will not hold my breath.

I couldn't agree more! Congress needs to have passion like that...and it wouldn't hurt if American's in general did.

The passion is good, but like you said...deirected in the wrong direction. Save some of it for these people at home.
