You're pretty awesome for wanting to help people that have nothing to give you besides their gratitude (and their disease that eats you from the inside-out). Feel free to keep up the good work.
If you happen to go be selfless and do those selfless things aforementioned to help people in other countries, and you happen to come back to the United States where there is not currently a health crisis with this disease, DON'T GET PISSY WHEN YOU ARE TREATED LIKE YOU HAVE THE PLAGUE, because guess what, YOU HAVE a slight chance OF HAVING THE MODERN DAY PLAGUE.
We should quarantine you. Because if we develop an epidemic and do not handle this disease with the respect and caution it deserves, then we will have a crisis. And do you think the continent of Africa will be organizing humanitarian efforts to help us? NO. They will not. Come to think of it, I doubt any country will send aid to us. But if they do, they'll have a plan and it will hopefully be a good one that protects their people, because a good government protects it's citizens and puts their safety first. They might send us some hand sanitizer and in the meantime they'll likely close their borders to anyone trying to enter their country from ours. Now THAT would be unfortunate. I mean, we Firstworlders have places to go and people to save!
Come to think of it, NurseWhoThinksHerHumanRightsWereViolated, I'm super sorry that you feel that quarantine was inconvenient, but Ebola doesn't exactly work into our 2 month plans, so do us a favor, get a Netflix subscription, watch the movie Outbreak (yes, even screenwriters in 1995 knew this was coming), and SHUT THE HELL UP.
Oh, we are being too callous and cautious? I am not saying that people shouldn't be inclined to help, because humanitarian efforts are really quite wonderful but do not come back to the country and complain about the safety measures that we (albeit, haphazardly) put into place to protect citizens. Even if they aren't perfect measures, they're attempts at protection, and if they change 3,248 more times in the next 11 days, Ms. ImmaSaveTheWorld, DON'T COMPLAIN and subject us to your whines. You went, you saved, you feel warm and fuzzy, now make friends with your DVR, grab a Snickers, and charge your tablet for Facetime.
Smallpox Hickox, I think that you belong in an attention brothel. I think that you are using this as soapbox to get famous. Is that helping the people that you so desperately are trying to save? No. It's scaring the crap out of the people that may cross your path as you stealthily prance around New England. Just stop. Better yet, continue! Go save A LOT MORE PEOPLE (somewhere besides the United States).
All Our Love,
Everyone That Doesn't Want an Ebola Crisis In the US
