I have received a few comments stating that basically we should not be worrying so much about Haiti when we have so much going on that needs help here. The thing that (some)people seem to be missing is that we can easily do both, and in doing so the entire world could be better.
On a personal note: I have been donating proceeds from my clothing line and music to help in aiding Haiti. Everyday, however I go into my community and work with at risk kids or special needs kids and "normal" kids as my Dance Company teaches people body awareness and movement. Part of that also involves going into schools and performing my music and putting forward a message of tolerance and self expression.
As much as our country may or may or may not need help, there are still nations with far greater going on. How does hearing something like the fact that people in Haiti survive on $2 a day and that they do not even have enough water, food or medical supplies to provide not make everyone want to help?????
How?
We are all connected in this world and I do agree that we can easily do good for things on a local level and sometimes don't, but that does not and should not dissuade you from trying help something as devastating as what is happening in Haiti. Why not donate $5 to Haiti and $5 of canned goods to your local food bank? If you cannot afford that, donate what you can afford. Again, my point is that we can help both things at once.
Simply the fact that people from around the world support what I do, makes me feel compelled to help anyWHAT that I can.
That is it. That is my opinion on it.
Wishing you all the best

Well said, I agree! Matter of fact, I'm going to school with some people from Haiti that lost family there. That's right, we are all connected no matter where in the world we live and we all should help! <3 Posted by: era603

I agree with you. If you think you have nothing to give there is always your heart. Posted by: Oddess

AMEN. Well said, everyone should help everyone. Your music and clothing line is amazing, you're such an inspiration for me, but my thing is the film industry, with my future work I hope I would help everyone who needs help in my country, Mexico and around the wolrd. Posted by: telecktronik

My THOUGHTS on ur songs: “We’re all gonna die.” Opinion: This song is very edgy,I would say,it sings ”we’re all gonna die,we’re all gonna die,gonna die,gonna die” n’ when it sings those words,it proceeds to level its self up,like the song-crank its self up,some n’ some more.i really think the song is great,but I would give it a another look it’s alright,I really like the level leveling itself up tho.That was pretty awesum to c a song,sing the same thing over and over again-but raise a lil higher each time,but It got kinda annoying after a while,like yea-we’re gonna die,what about it? “Every single day.” Opinion: Hahahahahahahah,all I can say about this song-is it kind of sounds creepy,but that’s why I love it.great job on the song,the sound.its very hip,very kewl,very different-I would say.:D “Muse” Opinion: OMIGOD,I just found my NEW favorite song.I love this song,is soooo sexi n’ great. I would give this a 10 out of 10.its licious,I cant stop playing it,its off the records.i really enjoy this song.again,its sooooo sexi.yummm.lol. “We can be.” Opinion: .i love the beat,very good sounds,love the voice.its my favorite because I like the words,I love the beats.very beat-licious. “Playing with fire.” Opinion: I would say this another 10 out of 10,its another fav. Of mine,its great.n’ playing w/ fire,sounds fun-just by listening to this song,n’ that’s what a song is supposed to do,make u feel like doing something,make u feel something,n’ this song,is like saying to me,I think playing w/ fire,would b fun. “Whispers of silence.” Opinion: OMIGOSH,this is another fav.ok,here is a overview of these 3 songs I rate 10 out of 10,which is 100%-I really luv the beats,the tune,the lyrics,I really love the song-all together,it wraps me up,twists me,n’ moves me,to the electro waves. “Get back.” Opinion: Hahahahahaha,I don’t know why-but this song makes my laugh n’ smile,its very funny-exciting-every kewl,every possibility,of awesumness.really enjoying the,”da-da-da”.lol Posted by: ROMA_55
