They have no shoes.
When we have more than 10 pairs.
They have no clothes.
When we get new ones every week.
They have no food.
When we stuff ourselves to the point of throwing up.
They have no clean water.
When we wash in hot water twice a day.
They have rotting teeth.
When we have more than 100 types of toothpaste.
They are alone.
When we care more about how popular we are.
We need to look past our problems.
And help other who have bigger ones.
We must help others, before we help ourselves.
