Just left a comment on Lahm’s wall, telling him how the Ice Bucket Challenge did raise $88.5 million. Just so he knows ‘cause I don’t think he does.
And yes, I’m one of those who don’t see anything bad in participating in it and donating.
Somehow I’m not surprised he doesn’t want to do it, but…
Participating could help raising awareness and also showed us how those who are suffering from ALS feel — the chill numbs our nerves and all. Empathy.
But I think what really matter is not only making a video but also giving information about ALS and where to donate (which he did).
It’s just not his thing so I understand his choice to not do the challenge.
After all, we are all entitled to our own opinion.
"also showed us how those who are suffering from ALS feel — the chill numbs our nerves and all. Empathy."
I’m glad you mentioned this ‘cause I think he missed that point. Imho. At least, that was the vibe that I got from his post.
As to having your own opinion, am I denying him this right? I don’t think so. I do understand where he’s coming from, which is why I wrote that whole paragraph about the challenge not making sense to him, not being something that he would do.
To ALL THE PEOPLE out there who read/will read my post, I would like to emphasize once again: I DO understand his reasoning, and it’s totally fine that he has his own opinion. I just don’t agree with it :)
Just like he’s entitled to his opinion, I’m entitled to mine :) That’s all.
I’m starting to feel like I’ve done something terribly wrong when I decided to disagree with him.
