I Feel The Need To Help OthersSometimes, I am really confused about the situations of others. What I mean to say is that I do not understand what I can do to help others. I am only 15 years old. I have a good life and at times there are a lot of things that I take for granted. Though, mostly it has been my heart's desire to help those less fortunate than me. I live in a war stricken country. Although, Pakistan is now past war you can still see the remaining battle marks that a country faces after war. People are generally upset with the overall conditions of the country. There are those who do not have electricity and gas because of shortage. I live in a government area so there is a constant supply of both gas and electricity. Though, I have always kept those in mind who have less than I do.
They do not have what I have. I believe that one man is equal to the next. However, in Pakistan, everything is divided. Some people are living in modest surroundings while others are suffering. There are two extremes, rich and poor. There is no equality except in times of prayer. I am anxious about the situation of my country. What can I do though? I am still young. I want to help but how can I? I feel helpless. Everyday, I see people who have less than me and feel sad. I want them to be as happy as I am. I want to do something.
I have to do something. It is my duty to mankind. I, by the grace of God, have been given a good life. This life, however good, fills me with pain sometimes. I want to help. I want to improve the situation of my people and I do not wish for any other country to have such separate societies. I can donate, yes, I can do that and help others. The money, however, for donations comes from my parents. I do not want to burden my parents. I want to work myself.
I am willing to do anything. I want to gather money on my own and give to the poor. I want my life to mean something. I have not figured out how I can do this at the current time. If there are any of you with suggestions as to how me and others like me can help, I would be in your debt.
