When I was a kid, I never realized that I had so much in my life that others did not have. Sure, I may have come from a middle if not lower-middle income family. But even then, life was luxurious enough.

Some people live their entire life never truly understanding what it’s like to be truly disenfranchised and dis-empowered by true poverty, which ultimately make them kids for their entire life.

We sometimes spend so much time looking up in envy at people who have so much more than us in richness and purchased happiness, that we forget that 99% of the world is looking up in envy at even the poorest of us too.
