On NYE I rang in the new year with my closest friends, while a friend of mine on the other end of the world was shaken with an earthquake. I expressed sorrow but he replied like it was no biggie.
It’s amazing when you think about how people live in the conditions they live in. An earthquake in Toronto would be chaos, while in Japan it’s just another day. Imagine living in a house where water is only a few steps away, when your whole life you’ve been fetching water from the nearest well which is miles down the dirt road. Many don’t appreciate the little things in life. But are the little things in our lives, something that would be valued in another life? LS
