Topic: The Plea From China
What would you do if you came across something you wished you
would of a long time ago? The guilt it brought afterwards lingers
in your heart. You feel as if you could of saved someone's life
if you would have.
One day, a woman decides to go through her garage and put away
old Halloween decorations from last years celebration and comes
across something she will soon wish she would of found sooner.
Inside the packaging was a letter folded up. It was from a
factory worker in china. Pleading for help because the labor laws
in China are absolutely horrible. They suffered great harm and
abuse for very low pay just so they can live, and us Americans
can have the things we do not appreciate. Over 90% of the goods
we buy from stores are from China.
The woman turned it into human rights association and she was
told they have received several plead notes from China saying
things similar. How do you think this woman felt after finding
the letter a year after she had purchased the item? I bet it was
a very shocking and eye-opening experience because she watched
everything she had bought afterwards. Even during Christmas
shopping. And it is true, the way they live in China is
absolutely sad. To add on to this thought, they aren't in debt
like America is. I have noticed in the passed few years,
Americans seem to live above their means and we end up in debt
that, in years, is bringing the country to hell. Even going for a
damn walk, you see poverty. Its so much worse in china.
Honestly, I am losing hope in the human race…
And that, is all I have to say…
