“Common, what the hell are you trying to tell me? It is none of your business how I use my resources. My hard gotten money, I spend it how I want, on what I want and is none of your business.” This was the response I got from a classmate when I was trying to tell him what I am about to tell you. You may have the same thought or reaction like my friend because what I am about to tell you now may not make any meaning to you. It is will be useless telling you to do it. But I believe, if you give it a second thought you will give me 2% that I am right.
In my house, I have everything I need. All my primary needs are met. But there are many outside there who don’t have up to 1% of what I am having. This thought usually comes to my mind whenever I am using some of these resources like water, electricity, cash, wears, and the like. I don’t need to waste any of these just because I have them or I have paid for them. Instead of throwing away those wears I just wore for a few months, why can’t I give them to those who are in need of them. Instead of throwing away those food stuffs not because they were bad, but just because I don’t like them anymore, why can’t I give them to those who are in need. While using water, I need to keep in mind that, there are many outside there who at present can’t even find a drop of it. They live around us. If we look for them, we will find them. When I was growing up, I thought there were no destitute people in the western world. I was seeing Europe as heaven, where all is complete. I thought poverty was born in Africa, grew up in Africa, and while remain immortal in Africa. Poor people are everywhere. We are poor in one way or the other. Poverty doesn’t necessarily mean lack of material things. I see it as a crime against humanity when we engage ourselves in such inhuman act.
Look for them and you will surely find them. When you find them, they will answer you, “We are here.” Let’s make the world a better place for all.
