How Lucky We Are

How Lucky We Are

Have you ever wonder how lucky you truly are?

  • If you are born into this world with perfect limbs
  • If you are not living in the middle of a war
  • If you have access to clean water and air

I lead a normal life but may be enviable to many. I'm not rich, not famous, and not a genius. What I have are awesome colleagues, good books, satisfying meals, a roomy place to live and sleep well, and many more.

You, too, are luckier than most people, whether you realize it or not.
