Home- Things NEED to change

So back home, I love everyone, but it bugs me how people bring so much food into their lives and waste half of it. I tried talking to some people, telling them that they don't know how fortunate they are, to eat such bountiful meals and that they shouldn't waste. If they don't want to eat it, then simply keep it so that you can eat it later. Do NOT throw it away. Then, instead of saying "okay that's an idea to consider," they say, "why are you so weird? If I don't want to eat it then I throw it away. I probably won't want to eat it later." I might be a hyprocrite, but I try my best to keep the food I don't want to eat so that I can eat it later. People in this country are so shielded. They have never seen what types of poverty there is in this world. That isn't their fault, and I'm not forcing them to visit a third world country, but I just wish that people could value food, health, and the lives that they have. We are just wasting the world's natural resources and taking more than we need. I am ashamed of the people that throw away their food because they aren't hungry or they don't like the taste of it. If you don't like it, then why buy it?! Anyways, that's the end of my rant, but I would just like to emphasize once more that food should not be wasted and we should be happy for the things we have in our lives, because people in other countries don't have the same privileges we have. That is all.
