I am not refering to any one person's views or comments here as it has been a combination of views that have caused me to reflect on these issues. It just seems to me that many people, especially people from more affluent countries or backgrounds, have a perception of life and how it should be lived and what it's priorities are and tend to view other peoples lives thru that view, and in some cases, try to impose those priorities on others. Lifestyles, customs, standard's of living, and how one lives in general is relevant to that persons life. There is alot of good that those of us with the meens can do to help others. There is also alot of resentment that can be caused, if in our attempts to help, we do not take the time to understand what help is wanted. Even if we perceive a need for help, if that help is not wanted, maybe we would be better off directing our efforts in other areas. Again, these are just rambling thoughts of mine and do not necessarily apply to any particular issues here.
