Have you ever thought about other countries that do not have the luxuries that you may have? There are 1.4 billion people in other countries around the world who do not even have half of the goods that we use for daily life. For example, we have electronics, paved roads, clean communities, good education systems, and many more facilities. There are many countries that are too poor to afford basic, everyday products such as toothpaste. If there was a month dedicated specially to those countries that are too poor to afford goods, there would be tremendous changes in national relationships between the United States and these countries that are in need of help. There would probably be fewer terrorist attacks and we wouldn’t have to worry about our country getting ambushed.
Over the years, the United States has thrown billions of dollars down the drain because of bad economy problems and we’ve accomplished almost nothing. If we were to actually save a little bit for those in need, we would be making huge impacts on poor countries like Africa, South America, India, and the Philippines. There are billions of people in villages and cities all over the world who have to live off of garbage. They can’t afford food so they’re left to eat scraps that they may or may not find. If our government tried to help other countries control poverty problems, there wouldn’t be so much global warming. People wouldn’t have to be eating garbage and there wouldn’t be so much rubbish everywhere. Everyday, more and more people are experiencing poverty. Even infants have to experience poverty since their families don’t earn enough income to buy food and goods.
Being poor isn’t the only issue. Have you ever thought about how those in poverty feel emotionally? When people in poverty get evacuated they have the most horrendous feelings and thoughts. The first thing that goes to their mind, what’s going to happen to me and what is going to happen to my children and family. Have you ever thought of all the discrimination and difficulties they may be going through? When people see other homeless people on the streets they think “wow, that’s so pathetic” but they don’t understand that these people need your help.
