How Cruel People Can be in Ignorance of the Facts ….

How cruel people can be in ignorance of the true facts.

I’m hurt.

I like writing and always have done. In these days, I put short reports of situations of interest to the public at large and I upload these to Kindle. One of these reports was about Ebola and, via Amazon.Com, I received a derogatory review that said I was making money from other people’s suffering.

I. I have offered free download days and over 700 people benefited from knowing what was happening in Africa up to the month of July 2014. I received nothing for these free downloads and was truly happy that so many people had downloaded the report.

2. From the small amount of earnings that I have made from those who have bought the Ebola report for 99 cents / 60 pence, I have donated money to the Red Cross in an attempt to give what I can to alleviate the suffering of the people of Africa and to help towards finding a solution. Money can also be given to Global Giving.

Today, while I browsed through my work on Amazon Kindle, I saw a comment that implied that my report deserved only a score of 1, because I was feeding off other people’s suffering. The person writing this review also slated another book on Ebola.

I am of the view that, if you are a busy person, you may benefit from condensed information. As a hard worker of many years in England, I can honesty say that I have no idea what was going on in the world between 1971 and 2005, as I was too busy working every hour that God sent and raising three boys at the same time. How I would have loved someone to have done the searching for me, providing me with condensed information which was free from frills.

Still, to the person who wrote this report, and so possibly either got it as a free download or paid only the smallest small amount allowed on Kindle (I could have asked more but didn’t), I hope you learned something from it.
