Children these days take so much for granted. Things that, even those who talk about how much we take for granted, take for granted. Like friends, a warm bed. Christmas. Turkey. See how strange that sounds?
Well this is why. Because We’ve always had these things. We throw things away because we can just buy a new one. We break things because we don’t know what goes into them. We use up energy, because we think it’s not our problem, and in a way it isn’t. It’s the hard working people who look after their things, who don’t have a warm bed, who can’t just hop on the computer and order some more, the people who can’t have turkey at Christmas, not because they’re vegetarians, because they can’t afford the things they farm.
We take so much for granted. Help me stop it. Don’t take it for granted. It doesn’t mean don’t have it, just think about what you have.
