In school ,in these United States of America, all anyone can talk about is how "lucky" we are. How much we "have". How we're "ungrateful" and "take everything for granted". This really bothers me, because these teachers have all the same privileges, and the same rights, and probably take the same stuff for granted!!
Plus, they're only talking about "privileged" in the materialistic sense. You could have the most messed-up family and the most messed-up life and the most messed-up friends, but as long as we have a house and material things, we're considered really lucky on the outside. (sidebar-just now, a family member of mine came in, read this, and went on, and on, about how we ARE lucky, thus completely violating blogging code).
Just recently, I struggled with something major and very very very bad, and i really wasn't feeling so lucky. No one really does, sometimes. But we have to keep in stride, keep our chins up, and remember just how "lucky we are"? Hello!!! Not fair!!!
