Am I actually heartless, or does someone agree with me?

Third world country's people are not our problem. I think it's awesome what some charities do for kids all around the world, but I really wish most of them would focus on our kids in this country.

Honestly I agree but the problem is even our kids here in the us I'm need are far better off than the kids in third world countries. Some don't even have clean water to drink let alone shelter or any of the other basic needs.

I wish we all cared about people worldwide and didn't think our country was the most important group of people ever born.

We are all human and I think it is someones obligation to help another human if possible. If humans are being mistreated, it is our problem. The problems in our country also can not be compared to problems in other countries.

I just feel like if we stayed in our own country and minded our own business, there would be less war.

I disagree. (And I respect your point of view)

I have traveled and help build homes, water wells, give food to third world countries and I have sent what real poverty really looks like.

Those people need help too and if there are charities to help them, great! I think we should all help each other but of course, that's not always the case.

I agree.

One of my biggest passions is disaster relief. I will do what I can to help in any disaster whether is happens here in the USA or somewhere else in the world.

I agree our own countries need help, but if it is what matters to someone, why shouldn't they help?

The same could be said about animal charities ect.  I could be told, look to helping the children in Canada, but honestly, animal charities are closer to my heart and where I would like my charitablemoney to go to.  That's my choice.

I agree that we have our own problems here. It is great to help others but only when we are in a position to do so. Which is not now.

We are all human beings. I think we should all ban together to make sure no child goes with out basic necessities like running water and food.
