If you've been in solitary seclusion fasting and praying for world peace, you may have missed this one. But for those that haven't been in a monastery somewhere, I'll leave the redundancy out, as it has been covered ad nauseum in the media.
Here are a few quick thoughts for your consideration:
1. I am not a fan of Oprah.
2. I think her heart was in the right place here, she was sincere in wanting to help these kids.
3. I think she is doing the best she can to rectify the situation, despite the fact that the damage cannot be undone.
4. Repairing the damage is an unusually hard task to undertake, especially when she has no real role models that take responsibility and accept accountability when screwing up. Very few people accept they've made a mistake and usually project blame on anyone else they can. Everyone except themselves.
5. If the media keeps bashing her for this, it may be a long time before anyone tries to do something like this, to help those that need help.
And people wonder why more wealthy people don't get involved in third world charities.
