putting things in perspective
Hmmm... As i mentioned a few posts ago, I got laid off a week ago. I hate job hunting, but even if I find no job for the rest of this year, the money I've made so far makes me wealthier than 87% of the WORLD's population.
Wow. Where do YOU stand?
I've known for a long time that we Americans take our wealth for granted, but seeing that really brings home how much of a disparity there really is.
I don't think there's ANYTHING we could not achieve with our nation's wealth if we really wanted to do it.
