The poorness and the lack of will

 Hoje o post vai ser em Inglês, pois constitui um pedaço do meu trabalho para esta disciplina sobre a Declaração universal dos direitos humanos! Foi talvez dos trabalhos mais interessantes que já fiz. Só lê quem tiver paciência. Antes disso deixo-vos novidades e um estado de alma: Encontro-me profundamente desiludida comigo mesma depois das cruéis palavras que disse à minha mãe. Já não me sentia assim há muito tempo, e hoje ela recorreu ao silêncio, o pior castigo que já me deram, esta doença afetou-me, a mim e à minha maneira de ser... e magoei-a, sei que sim, e isso é o que dói mais. Estou extremamente arrependida e não sei quando tempo vai passar até receber o perdão que anseio por!
 Chega de tristeza! Deixo-vos o meu trabalho cheio de opiniões:


    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was written, not to be followed, but to be disrespected! It was supposed to be applied worldwide. However, fewer and fewer people who actually stick to its content. And I’m not even talk about countries, because it was everyone duty to fulfil what is mentioned in this declaration.
    Furthermore, we, as society, should all help the people that live in miserable conditions and also give a hand to those who are victims of human rights violation. Yet, we just sit and watch while talking about how bad people live, but we do nothing actually.
Article number 17 in this universal statement says that “Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others”, but we see homeless people every single day, perhaps we don’t really care about the condition in which this people live in, because we walk among them and we feel indifference.
    In fact, I recently saw something that really impressed me: I was going back home when I saw a homeless that had seen a rotten persimmon on the ground. He stared at it for long and suddenly climbed the wall and searched for persimmons on the tree behind the grill, when he noticed that there weren’t any other fruit on the trees he came down and got the one that was on the ground and ate it. I was appalled, and then I realized that there are a lot more in the same situation as him: they haven’t got houses or cars or televisions or all other superfluous things that make us sick if we lose them. «And we say we care, but we all lie», even though sometimes we try to make some difference, but we don’t realize that spending one day in some storehouse filling bags with food does not make the difference, that should be done daily.
    Where are the people that sign this declaration and agreed to it when these homeless people need them!? Where is the fairness in these cases? Ok! A lot of them hadn’t move a finger to avoid this situation but nobody deserves to live on the streets, naked under the rain, the snow and exaggerated sunshine.
    As a matter of fact there is an article that states what I mentioned before: article 25: “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.”
    This is really interesting considering that situations of not having a thing are all around the globe. We treat homeless people as non-identified individuals. We close our eyes before them, avoiding worries and headaches. Those we don’t see, don’t care about.
    I memorize the image of the homeless eating persimmon and I was invaded by a will of searching the man and give him something to hold on to.
    Unfortunately, in a weird way, these are the aspects that make the world an interesting place to live in, because people need something either to fight against or to be indifferent to.
