Apparently, it is. I haven't heard much from anyone, the gay community included, about this. The trouble is, every cause seems to get a day, a month or a year. They get buttons,parades or goofy hats to wear.
Unknown politicians often stand up during member's statements and ramble on about causes. Causes get telethons, buildings and areas named after them. Agencies scurry back and forth drumming up money for causes.
Next week will be Murphy Week.
Murphy Week is a time to celebrate and help all the Murphys of the world. Feed the starving Murphys by sending me money. I, as a Murphy myself, will get it to them. They are too weak to walk.
The sick Murphys need your help too. The diabetic, cancerous, Lou Gehrig's disease inflicted Murphys appreciate your support. You don't have to donate a lot. Just $10 will send an illiterate African Murphy to school. Give a Belfast Murphy a safe place to live and clean water to drink.
Every year, there are Murphys who get no schooling because they cannot afford recreational drugs or any alcohol for school trips. It's hard to live with the shame of watching your friends smoke some ganja while you go without.
Clean clothes, a sturdy pair of shoes and a package of cigarettes can change the life of a teenage Murphy. You can give them that life altering change and feel good about yourself.
Baby clothes, condoms and some blow can ease the daily life of an unwed, teenage Murphy mother.
You don't have to change the lives of a million Murphys. Just one is all we ask.
