The first world problems seem to be getting on the nerves of so many people of the country that we tend to forget the sufferings of the people of the world. Helene Cooper who is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist knows it first-hand that the very same world could be a brutal place to live in unless one helps the other. She is a Pentagon correspondent for the New York Times (NYT) who also served as the White House correspondent before assuming the position.
