People must be very happy there.

A friend of mine recently told me a story from an experience she had in her country. This friend is from Costa Rica, and while she was visiting there she spoke with a little boy. He asked her about America.

"Do you have a car?"
"Yes, I do," she said.
"People must all be happy in America."
"Well, no, many people are very sad," she told him.
"Why? People must be happy always there! There's always food, they always have food to eat. And you can buy whatever you want."

There's always food. People must be very happy there. Just take a moment and imagine the sort of life that most people live in this world. Try not to take all that you have for granted. Appreciate that fresh clean water you're drinking, appreciate that you had food to eat today. And if you can, if you have the heart, try to give to those who aren't so fortunate, and who are in need.
