I work with what I call ' the workable indifference ', I ' help ' but don 't

This also stands for what is considered as solidarity.
We can be solidair with everybody, but I don 't let it take me,... when a
disaster has occured the people unvolved got my sympathy, but I don 't
let it run free in my head....
After 9 / 11 the US people got my sympathy, but I don 't allow that the
