Thank you, Majeeda!
You’re absolutely right about life being so different in these countries compared to what I grew up with in the USA. But I think that observing how even though we may live such different lives, we’re not all that different. We all still need to drink water, wash our clothes, and clean ourselves.
And about the responsibility: I think we all can learn to be more responsible. Just last week, I wrote a post about how we matter the most. That post was born from my recognizing that I wasn’t being responsible for my own health. If we can so easily forget to be responsible for something that close to home (our own bodies), then I’m sure that being responsible for other things will be equally as challenging!
