Finances are a major concern in this world, but some people do not need to worry about money. With over 2,000 billionaires in the world and many thousands of multi-millionaires who control more than hundreds of millions of dollars each, it seems totally inequitable that such huge amounts of money are had and hoarded by a small amount of the population when so many people are suffering.
Some people have worked extremely hard for their money. Others have inherited it. Some may have hit a lucky streak which caused them to be highly successful with relatively small effort. We may wonder: Why don’t they give more? Surely it is not that they need all the money they have.
During these times of economic crisis due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus throughout the world, it would seem that these super wealthy people should be sharing more of their wealth. Although most of them may have established foundations which give away money on a regular basis, this is a time when many ordinary citizens could use some help.
When people who have 100 million dollars donate one million dollars to help others with food during this world-wide crisis, it is commendable. It is a drop in the bucket to them, but it is something.
People who wish they were rich often dream of making it big so that they can help others. They have a feeling of wanting to give to the less fortunate. If more people who have tons of money would reach out to share some of the wealth that they will never need, the world would be a better place.
A friend who had a business which was very successful was willing to help others. He said that he had more money than he and his family would ever need, and he was willing to share. There are many people in the world like this person. Some are giving regularly, but some could give so much more.
It is unbelievable that so few people can control most of the world’s wealth. If more of these super rich people would share the mentality of Warren Buffet, they would be willing to give back more to help others. There are so many people in the world who could benefit if more people would help the less fortunate.
Life is not fair and never has been. Bad things happen to good people. Seemingly undeserving people sometimes reap huge rewards for little effort. It is necessary to just keep trying and believing. A sign a homeless person was holding on a street corner read: HOMELESS BUT NOT HOPELESS. That is a good attitude which most people probably would not have. Maybe a helping hand would give him the hope to move forward and get out of his sad situation.
During World War II, Japanese Americans were placed into American concentration camps in remote areas of the nation. Things seemed hopeless as they lost their freedom and most of their personal belongings. They had to endure and keep hoping that things would get better. Almost no one would help them in a desperate situation.
Stay safe and look to better days. Share and help others if you can.
