I know.. I know.. EVERYBODY has seen or heard about P*aris Hilton’s video clip. Yes, it’s funny but, SAD. Sad really in the fact of her egotism & vanity. And, we find it Funny! No.. I’m not endorsing anybody.. But Jesus, & he doesn’t need my endorsement at all!
I was just thinking how much GOOD she could be capable of & how she’s not doing any GOOD at all. She could be raising money for the poor and needy… making a video about that instead of glorifying herself….& look how many people would listen.. because its her. It’s all about Paris! But what’s even sadder… nobody would want to watch her talk about dying children in China or feeding hungry children in Africa or HERE in the US! What is this world coming to?
