I am so grateful and thankful for being one of the lucky people on planet earth. I live in a nice home, drive a nice car, am able to put abundant amounts of food on the table, by clothes and all the other necessities of life, have good health care and freedom to do as I please. I am thankful I have enough that I can share with others and donate to charities and worthwhile causes.
After the past few months, there have been so many people affected by natural disasters from fires to hurricanes and earthquakes., I feel blessed to be one of the lucky ones. And then to think of all the people around the world living in poverty, with not much to eat every day, and those living in war-torn countries, or fleeing them to live in refugee camps. I have a friend working as a medical aid in a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, and the stories and images she posts on social media are horrific. No one should have to live like this and go through these tragedies these people face but they do.
So yes I feel blessed to be one of the lucky ones living in peace in the USA. With all our problems we are still free to do as we like and say what we want and go where we please.
