Title: That's how difficult life has become, so count your blessings ..
Post by: Heba E. Husseyn on June 08, 2011, 11:40:56 pm
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still married you are very rare, especially if you are living in the United States, Western Europe or Canada. 

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

THAT'S HOW SCREWED UP THIS WORLD HAS GOTTEN TODAY WHICH WE PROUDLY CALL THE "MODERN AGE OF CIVILIZATION."

Absolutely right on, sis.  It really shows how low the values of planet earth have plunged and yet it's supposed to be more "civilized" than it was 200 years ago and more.
