So i got the idea today to contact my local library and give them a proposal of a betta fish awareness event I want to hold. I have been soooo excited since i thought of it and made a comment on facebook about how i hoped they would let me do it. this is the response I got (from a good friend, he was sort of picking on be, but mostly not):
"really? world hunger. global war. rampant illness, continuous misuse of the worlds finances, racism, bigotry, poverty, and now beta fish? not gonna lie. i'm not really seein' it. you wanna cause? do you realize that if (god forbid) your brother gets shot that the Red Cross will make him pay for any blood he recieves as part of his rescue and recovery? lets bring awareness to that! just sayin' =]"
are you kidding me?? I'm sorry that I cant solve every freaking problem in the world and wanted to make a difference in something I am knowledgeable about and that I think is an acuatal (no matter how small) problem. Can't people just UNDERSTAND about bettas already?? also, way to bring back the anxiety that my brother will die in battle. pff.
