In the world? I am having a hard time dealing with the fact that we are free and able to live a privileged life when so much of the world is starving, being persecuted, living in horror. Like honestly, we can watch a movie that cost millions of dollars to make when children are dying because they can't afford even a grain of rice....or witnessing/being subjected to horrible violence and persecution just because of where they were born. We can drive 2 minutes down the road to buy a chocolate bar made by child slaves. We complain about taxes, roads, anything that isn't perfect really. Don't get me wrong, I know we all have our real issues that need and deserve to be dealt with, believe me I know it's just that the world seems to have 2 extremes. One extreme is that we can put drugs into our body for fun/to block out emotional or physical pain/whatever when so much of the world don't have access to basic healthcare. We have so much food that obesity and eating disorders are a major problem...when most of the world can't even eat.
We used to be quite pro active in doing our part but lately have not done much at all. My question is, what do you do? And why is the world so out of whack? I seriously can't get my head around it.--
