I’m not sure how things work where you are from….but…Here we have many charities that help the needy. I’m sure we all know the routine. There is either a donation box pretty much everywhere you go or you receive a phone call and even commercials.
There is another way of donating especially around the holidays for instance, the biggest one of all… Salvation Army… their bells ring all Christmas season at your local grocery store, walmart.. etc.
This particular one I am having a huge issue with, especially today!!
Besides the Fire Department, I think These are the only Charity Group that stand in the center of the road at MANY intersections asking for Donations, then they give you a Tootsie Roll.
What a safety hazard, for one!! These men and women are not construction workers so this is a risk taken on their own free will!! I have not researched how many are injured or die per year… but… I have a feeling there are some. This kind of thing is bound to happen when you are standing on the center line “between” Traffic!!!!
Today I saw something that I could not believe!!!
I am not sure if this was the man’s Daughter or Granddaughter about the age 12-13 Standing on that center line along with him!!!
This brings me to wonder.. HOW DESPERATE !!!!!
THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
are to bring in children to “play” in the road…
Aren’t we always telling them to stay out of the road!! That child has no idea of the true danger that the man had put her in. She is just excited because she get’s to help!!! I am astonished at what I saw and this is why I needed to rant this out because in “My Opinion” that is just not right!!! I feel that there are many other ways this child can help and still be fulfilled!!
I pray for this young ladies safety throughout the day and into her future and may her choices always suit her highest good ♥ and that those making the choices for her choose safety first~
P.S. The Knights Of Columbus are a Do wonderful charity, this I am not knocking…. it is the judgement of those who serve I do not necessarily agree with….
