World's Problem

I felt I knew the story because it is our world's problem, you see why I always say that the rich willnever want the poor to become like them so they can continually do as they please. But one day God will judge, thank you for always writing. Your voice is reaching thousands through WP, and one day, we shall solve our problems.
