Who's that girl?: Perspective
‘One day in early spring, a father took his youngest son on a trip to the country with the firm intention of showing his son how poor people can be. They spent a single day and night away from the country home, where a very poor family had been living in a makeshift home in the field.
When they returned, the father asked his son,
”Did you enjoy our trip?”
“I did father, i think i understand now”, he replied.
“Did you come to learn how poor some people can be son?”, the father asked.
“I think so. I think i did, father.”
“And what did you learn?”
The son answered,
”I saw that we have one dog at home, and they have four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the yard, they have a creek that has no end.
We have imported lamps to light our garden, and they have all of the stars.
Our patio reaches out into our front yard, but they have the entire horizon”
When the little boy had finished, his father was speechless.
His son added,
”Thankyou father, for showing me how poor we really are.”
Your life depends purely on the way you look at it.
If you have love, friends, family, good health and a positive attitude toward life,
You are richer than most and have everything you’ll ever need.
The revolution begins in the mind of a child.
