    A collector for charity came to my door today. I'm a full-time college student. When a friend mentioned the rich should probably be able to sort what I'm suddenly expected to contribute to without blinking, I thought of this.

I have to read one more story about how a child was forced to use their pocket money to save their friends from starving, or strangers were the only reason a child received a life-saving surgery, I'm going to lose it. 1% of people own over 50% of all the world's wealth. Universal Healthcare is possible. We could solve these problems for everyone. Or we could just be happy that people survive because of unbelievable willpower and the kindness of strangers in a handful of cases. That seems constructive and not at all delusionally sentimental.
