Life is a lottery. Where you’re born has nothing to do with you. If you’re born in a hospital and not at home, you’ve had a better start than most. It’s luck that you get to attend – let alone finish – school. Luck that you’re able to choose a career.
The thing is, nobody wants to accept charity – nobody dreams of that life.
So I think we should count ourselves lucky, every day, that most of us never have to be in that position.
We should be good to each other. And help others out if we can. And remember that it’s all a game of luck anyway… and we don’t know when that luck might run out.
My work with some amazing NGOs reminds me of this. I’ve worked with them on great projects in the past, and I hope to do so again in the future.
