It is my understanding that in three days or less, one billion dollars has been pledged or donated for the rebuilding of the Cathedral. I guess the importance of such a building is beyond my comprehension. But how far would a Billion dollars go toward elevating homelessness and hunger in France or all around the world for that matter.
That building is important to tourism for France, it will not feed or house one person Ever.
I don't know for sure but I believe you can start a campaign tomorrow for Homeless and Hunger donations and you may die of old age before you reach a Billion dollars in donations. If you are thinking about it, start while you are young.
I don't know how much of that one Billion came from the United States, but I am sure some of it did or will.
While we sit in our homes with heat, air, food and other luxuries, thousands sit at our borders wanting to come in because of fear for their lives due to dictatorships, persecution of religion and other things.
We separate their families and say they are all convicts and terrorists or whatever. Did we forget how we got here? For all the money we are spending on the wall, we could build enough temporary housing, feed and cloth all these people, vet them and let in the proper ones, deport the rest.
I believe that this country is going to Hell in a hand basket! Greed and power are the only things important.
I personally will not be sending any money to repair the Cathedral but I would send money to help the poor, hungry and immigrants at the border but the Federal Government would find a way to screw it up.
