Well, I wouldn’t call him a moron…

I have a serious bone to pick with this situation. I saw your first post about it this weekend and how you said listing the reasons why you like the person you like crushed your self-confidence, and it honestly sucked to read. I was tempted to say something, but I didn’t because I didn’t think it would last long, and why should ex-boyfriends you haven’t talked to in a while have an opinion about this?
Then you added more posts about it. Each one hurt more and more to read, so I thought I should finally say something because I know you better than this guy. (Disclaimer: Everyone else who ends up reading this should know the following opinions are not caused by jealousy.)
Why should listing the reasons why you like this guy crush your self-confidence? Maybe you should list reasons why you’re a good person, and why anybody would be lucky to have you in their lives? Why are you glorifying this guy at the expense of putting yourself down? 
The most bullshit thing I’ve read was, “…he deserves and needs someone who does.” Do you know this guy enough to know what he deserves and needs? Who are you to say what he deserves and needs, anyway? Why are you hiding all the things you could offer that he most likely needs more than someone who has their shit together?
The truth is that you have so much love and warmth to give. You are one of the most thoughtful, loving, and generous person I know, and this guy is lucky enough to have someone like you just be interested in him. It seems like you are more than interested in him, and he doesn’t even see how lucky he is. 
And then you have the heart not to call him a moron? I beg to differ because if this guy doesn’t see how amazing you are, if he doesn’t see the things you can give him, if he doesn’t see how lucky he is to have someone like you want to give him so much, if he doesn’t see how much you’re worth to like you back, then yes, he IS a complete moron. 
Don’t give what you can offer to someone who doesn’t see your worth. Stop undermining yourself as a person for someone like that because someone like you should know better. 
I’m sorry that you have to go through this. You deserve better than someone who can’t appreciate you. I know it’s become really cliche, but it really IS his loss. Not yours. You really have nothing to be sad about, so I hope you feel better about all this soon. You will do so many great things and you’re too amazing of a person to feel sad about a situation like this. Take care, kid. It will get better. I promise. You can feel sad for a while, but don’t spend too much time dwelling on it. Everything is going to be okay. You’re going to be okay.

Think about this shit.

This is the third time the bill has failed, following defeats in 2010 and 2012.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would require employers to disclose payment and demographic information and prevent them from punishing workers who discuss their salaries. It would also allow civil pay discrimination lawsuits to be filed against employers.
Republicans opposed the bill, arguing it would encourage “frivolous” lawsuits and deprive women of workplace flexibility.- MSNBC

This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.
 ”How we treat the least of us defines us.”

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"

How much money have you  wasted that could’ve gone to help struggling parents and pregnant women is the better question to ask.

Yeah if i was a struggling parent and I saw that “monument”, you know what I’d do? Break into that fucker and use the money to help my kid get a better life.
Clearly those “charitable” folks aren’t using it on kids that have actually been born.

A few facts that the OP neglected to mention.
a)  The glass box is on the grounds of the Mississippi Baptist Convention building—right across from the Mississippi state capitol. It was placed there deliberately to remind legislators that the Baptist Church—which is very powerful in the South—is staunchly anti-abortion.
b) This wasn’t created by regular people, charitable or otherwise. It was a deliberate and high-profile project of the Convention. Using the services of a construction company that worked free of charge, they erected the glass box in 2006, putting 47 MILLION pennies in it on the day that it opened, thus creating the illusion that many, many people had contributed.
c) Once $500K was collected—back in 2008, by the way, and the photo dates back to 2007—the money was then spent by the Convention, which invested it on a permanent endowment fund for anti-abortion causes, such as assisting with the operations of crisis pregnancy centers.
d) Almost all crisis pregnancy centers are church-sponsored and evangelical in nature.
e) Most crisis pregnancy centers have ties to evangelical maternity homes, adoption lawyers, and private adoption agencies. Any crisis that a woman coming to such a center might be facing would be irrelevant; for the purposes of the center and its affiliates, it is paramount that she have the baby. Babies, especially healthy white babies, are in high demand by would-be adoptive parents, and there is a very small supply.  There are horror stories about women who have been forced continue pregnancies and who have been forced to relinquish, most to evangelical families. Evangelical churches support and encourage this kind of thing. They figure that this way, they win twice over: they save lives AND they get to control how the next generation thinks. 
f) So, to recap.The Baptist Church underwrites the memorial (at least the first 47 million). The funds eventually go back to the Baptist Church, which invests them in businesses that will help produce more goods—babies—for other evangelical businesses, such as adoption agencies and adoption lawyers, AND that will create more religious and political support in the future.
This is NOT a memorial created by heartbroken people, OP. It’s big business.
