I’m not always a guy who gives money to things. I have a litany of excuses for getting out of giving. Sometimes, I'm even convinced that these excuses are true.
But here, I have drawn the line. I have donated to Doctors Without Borders so as to help alleviate the tragedy in Haiti. Because that's what it is: a tragedy. It is a tragedy because it is the fall of people who have but one hamartia: they were born mortal and susceptible to the earth's violent whims. Their hamartia is that they were born in a country already riddled with strife and poverty. Their tragic flaw is that the world is not perfect.
Even though I can scarcely afford medical services in my own country, I see a need that is greater than myself. Get beyond. Stay beyond.
