    This is definitely a nice thing to see! I love that Google is working to take a global stance of fighting social issues and problems across the globe. I can only hope it makes a difference before it's too late.

    I'm also kind of curious on who is creating the ideas, and what their 'do tank' ideas will hold. We're definitely better off throwing philanthropic ideas than bombs and war tanks

    What do you think?

    I think that goodle should fix up the states first and then help the world. :3 (how can you solve problems if your own country is in shambles itself? Google is American, right?)

    I think Google is going for bigger picture here, @DawnshadowDawnshadow. Our country has problems, but nothing compared to what's been going on in Africa and other third-world countries for years.

    This, I couldn't agree anymore. I wish we could develop those other countries, and get more money flowing in their countries. It's not Google's area to fix the United States, leave that to Congress and the President.

    What does everyone think about that? Do you think Google has the power, and with its partner, to help Mexico's problems with the cartels?

    Of course they have the power, and I like the idea and hopefully they do something about it. The situation in Juarez in insane.

    Wow, that's a lot of information and stuff to think about. I had no idea what kind of issues there were there. I also don't have any idea how powerful etc... they are. Google is pretty big. Maybe they can help I just don't know. If all the above is true I sure hope they can!
