As if the news of Quake and Tsunami dissaster in Aceh and surrounding areas is not bad enough, I have to watch / see / read people trying to become heroes. Not, I am not talking about those people who are actually do something helping the victims without trying to be popular. No, sir! They are usually unknown, faceless. Sometimes, all they can do is pray and pray they do. God bless you folks.
I am talking about those who milk this situation to gain popularity. We know who you are. You want your name (group name, affiliation, or what have you) be known. Yes, we know who you are. We know that you're in for the popularity contest. Get heck out of the way! You are taking resources from people who are really in need.
There have been news about high-rank people, celebrities, and the like (unfortunately, including news persons) who are flocking the disaster area. They are taking planes, places, water (and other limitted resources) from people who are really in need. Some people could not leave Aceh because they have to wait for available resources. This makes me sick. But, there's nothing I could do.
I just wish that I was wrong about all of this, that you are really want to help the victims, and that the victims benefit from you being there. If that's the case, I offer my apology. Show me that I am wrong. Please ...
