By living in the United States, we have different values than others around the world. For example, we value luxuries such as large homes and fancy cars, whereas in third world countries, people value food and water. In the United States, we always have access to food and water whenever we want, so we take it for granted and don't value it. In the movie "Thrive", the men who came from Africa valued each other and each other's families back home, but here in the US, they realize that it's hard to spend time with family because they're working over 16 hours a day. As Americans, we value money and luxuries, and take for granted what many others value and beg for. I feel that we should value food and water and other essentials more, and do more to help others in third world countries to gain access to these essentials.
