If you could live in a place that is bad and see it through their eyes...would you do it?

a prisoner,-- a third world country,- a homeless person on the street, someone in a nursing home (young or old), someone that hates their job, someone forced to take work they can't do,..... like a puny little person lifting garbage all day. *ex.

  • I already have compassion for people and am greatful for my situation, even though it's not the best either. I just wish there was more I could do to help.

  • I would like to do this. I am sure we do not really appreciate the other guys situation.

  • No, I think I can imagine the torture, pain, loss, and the awful things they experience enough. I am blessed to be where I am, I don't need to live the opposite lifestyle to know that. I just wish there was more I could do for them. I give money, but who knows where that goes really...

  • Luckily folks in developing nations CAN"T see their world through OUR eyes. That's why you'll see kids playing happily in streets covered with trash and people living in shantie towns, trying their best to keep them clean and comfortable.

    I'd be more worried if someone could see my life through the eyes of a homeless person or a person from a third world country. HOT RUNNING WATER, INDOOR TOILET, HEAT, TELEVISION, FRIDGE, COMPUTER. The things we take for granted in the USA would make someone from another country feel like a millionaire, yet we often find things to complain about. Sad, really...

  • I try to see things through the eyes of those in bad situations, and it's terrible. I think that if someone were able to truly see through the eyes of those less fortunate there would be more compassion and empathy in the world. I'd do it.
