A Bad Day

Every so often we all go through a bad day. We have people breathing down our neck at work, or we are arguing with a family member, or a loved one won’t talk to us. It is times like that when it is good to think about those who never have a good day:

  • POWs/MIAs
  • Prisoners 
  • Hospitalized Patients 
  • Those who live in abject poverty 
  • The oppressed 
  • Children who are abused 
  • Women (and men) who are abused
  • People in dead end jobs 
  • People suffering from depression

Even some of these people have amazing fortitude and are able to rise above feelings of desperation and have a pleasant outlook every day. I admire these people and aim to be like them. Life is too short to wallow in self pity and be angry at the world.
