Our current society values education so much. We can learn anything we can possibly imagine through books, newspapers, and the internet. We can communicate with people all over the world with the click of a button. Babies know when you are upset and try to make you smile.
While there are people starving, there are billions of people helping others every day, by volunteering or donating money or simply being kind to their struggling family members and neighbours. We are all just trying our best. It doesn't cost anything to be kind.
