Are you Aware?

Topic: Are you aware that someone has it worse than you?

Words By Jonan

We are more than lucky to have all that we have. We are blessed to have the resources, the opportunity, and time to better ourselves. The older we get, the more opportunity I feel is teeming and the more I am grateful for what I have and who I am becoming. Many of my peers and the youth in today’s world have an innate sense of entitlement and it is saddening to see such behavior exhibited. The notion of entitlement is instilled at an early age and whether you are middle class, wealthy, or in the lower class, everyone has this sense that everything they have is theirs and theirs alone. Now, it is understandable that the time and effort one puts forth to achieve something is commendable, but we mustn’t lose ourselves in what we own. We as a society, must work cohesively to create new ideas, new innovation, and better ourselves internally and externally. To be where we are currently is a blessing and an opportunity never to be squandered or exploited. We must continue to strengthen ourselves and perpetuate these ideas to those around us.
