People in America today seem to be only concerned with them They are always looking out for number one That is a saying that has been taught to us for years Along with another popular precept you cant please everyone all of the time These are just a couple of examples of how Americans are taught to be selfish Sure mom and dad always teach generosity to their young children but in this society those lessons diminish with age We learn that life isnt always fair and people dont always have to share if they dont want to In this so-called free country the rich get everything and the poor get nothing This type of environment has caused a rat race among the people He who has the most wins In America it is for the most money but there are many other people in the world who might disagree What would they want the most of you ask Well that depends on whom you ask When you take a trip half way around the world the values are totally different The Eastern religions Hinduism Buddhism Taoism to name a few practice very different beliefs They are more centered on love thy neighbor than the Christian Religion This is not to say that Christians are wrong or act wrongfully it just says that the difference in beliefs generates a significant difference in society Here in America our society claims we should love thy neighbor but it tends to depend on who the neighbor is We want our neighbors to be just like us If they are not then it becomes more difficult to show compassion The Eastern religions practice compassion for all people no matter who or what they are In America compassion is scarce Its predominant in families and in small towns but in the larger cities it is hard to see if it exists at all A movie has been made
