Save someone's life, not someone's fortune

Dear Friends:

I have had it with voodoo politics and I would like to make a stand.  I want to encourage all of you to do so as well.  While watching the news today I realized that there IS something ordinary people can do to express our feelings about all this nonsense.

Please pledge to donate blood sometime in the next month to help the sick.

Let's not take names.  Let's not count how many million ccs we can come up with.   This is not about numbers, it is about right and wrong.  "Pid thong lang phra"* is what we need to do.

If we cannot donate more blood to help our fellow humans than this manipulated gang can waste on a senseless ritual, then we deserve to be ruled by a mob.

Please pass this on.

Best wishes
Somtow Sucharitkul
