At school today, I saw these two women walking down the hall. One of them was a foreign exchange student and could hardly speak English. As they were walking past a bubbler, one lady stopped to show the foreign exchange student what it was. I heard her explain it like this
“This is a bubbler, or a water fountain. Do you know what that is?”
“When you press this button, water comes out, So whenever you get thirsty you can just come to one of these and get a drink!”
“Do you have to pay for it..?”
“No, its free!”
The foreign exchange student looked so amazed by it.
That whole thing got me thinking. So many people sit here and bitch about their lives and say they have a terrible life when they don’t get what they want. Yes, bad things may happen to you, but you don’t realize how good you have it until you see something like that. So please, stop bitching about not having the newest cell phone or computer or newest gaming system. If you have a roof over your head, appreciate that shit! There are some people out there who don’t have anything and are still able to look on the bright side of things.
