Without getting too controversial, today I am grateful for an education.
I am grateful that I was lucky enough to be born in America. I am grateful that I was lucky enough to be born into a family not in poverty, who was able to love, support, and take care of me. I am grateful that I was lucky enough to get my high school diploma. And I am grateful that at the end of the semester in four weeks I will be lucky enough to be part of the 7 percent of the world who has a college degree.
People are not born into poverty because they are being punished by God, or anything of the sort. It is by sheer luck that I was born into the life that I have, and it is up to me to help those who are not so lucky.
If you are reading this, you are part of the 22 percent who own or share a computer. I hope that we can all find someone to help this season, or this year who is less lucky (because that’s really all it is) than us, because we were put on this life together to help each other.
What are you grateful for today? I would love to hear what you are grateful for in the comments. 🙂
