1. Hunger-Global issue
What is life for you?
For me... Life is a puzzle, sometimes you know the way out, sometimes you ask someone to help you but sometimes you just can't do anything about it. I think the most important thing about life, is to never say never, it means to never give up, because nothing is impossible if we want to achieve it.
For most of us life is easy, well let's look at a global problem, and see if life is simple for everybody.
 
I think hunger is something that's affecting many  people around the world, see this chart and tell me what you think about it.

On October 11, 2010 there was a report about malnourished people in the world, which went above 1 billion people, that is one sixth of the world population. About six million children die of hunger every year, isn't that sad?

There were about 925 million undernourished people in the world in 2010. Investigations say that the world already produces enough food to feed everyone (6 billion people)  and could feed double (12 billion people). What is that supposed to mean? Are some people eating more that they should? Or are we wasting our food? Why don't we do anything about it?

I think sometimes we just don't realize the situation, but I'm sure that if we know how to fly the air as birds, and swim the sea like fish, we can definitely do something about it.

My classmates and I have been investigating about a global Issue called Arab Spring. We have been working on the causes, the effects and on how technology affects everything. We got to the conclusion of technology's role in revolutions, it was that technology excels everything for better or for worst, It helps people come together and know about things easier and faster.

3. United Nations
A billion of people in the world, survive with less than a dollar a day. Could you survive like that?

I know I wouldn't.
This problem has been very important in the world, as you can see at the beginning of this post.
United Nations in the 2000, came up with a plan to help. 189 heads of pledge and government came together to make a better world. If the process continues like this, or improves, we will be able to achieve this goal by 2015. Their goal is clear and it is to stop misery, suffering, hunger, poor housing, illnesses, the missing of respect, dignity and choice.
They say that this should not be done only at the United Nation, but also in each and every country, and that can only happen if we all come together to make a change.
