The People WE Are Vs The People We Choose

Living in the world we live in today, I see so many lost people in the world. Statistics show that
almost half of people either don't know who they are as a person, or are unhappy with the person

assumption that we as people are starting to not to care others. The World is very selfish in many
different ways. The most important way that the world is selfish is we tend to not care about
others feelings. It it said that the United States has the biggest suicide statistic ever. As a group
we ask the biggest question of all, WHY? To be exact, I'm not sure if there is an exact answer.
There are so many factors you can't just pick one. The factor that stands out most to me is
Bullying. I can attest to this because I am a...
