Sometimes we  complain about nonsensical things. First world problems!  Why your iPhone crashes all the time, why the shower is too cold. The Apple update is taking too long, I have things to do. The AC in the building is like a freezer. Then  you read stories like these and  they shake you to the core. What if you never had a choice. No choice about the food you eat, the people you meet, the life you lead? The only thing that is dear to you is the fact that you can live to see another day.  

My emotions are all over the place after reading this piece. It’s sad, it’s heavy, it’s beautifully written.

Count your blessings.
