Right now I sit in the hospital waiting before I can visit my mother (see my last post). Sitting here…. seeing worried people, people with health problems… people in pain… people with an unclear future….
We people are so spoiled… have so many priorities all wrong… In the end it comes all down to people, the people around us every day… no money, no big belongs, no career, no big time things…. just people, those that are everyday close and the ones we care about.
This mood I am having currently made me think of a small movie I saw recently on the Blog of my friend Dave (and which I shamelessly copied from there)….
Appreciate what you have…

I know the feeling far too well. Having a loved one being hospitalised and seeing a lot of people in troublesome situation. And at that time things become very relative.
But i have to disagree with the small film. As a complete, It is only made to make a person feel guilty. It makes you think, but it also should be forgotten after watching.
“The film is to absolute. In a situation that everything becomes relative”
What is use of something that makes you think and then you forget about it? And concerning the quilt you mention… we (the rich western world as a part) have enough to feel guilty about. That doesn’t mean we have to throw all over board… but we can do a but more as we are doing right now (well, as most of us do… governments and citizens).
The only movie should only be seen as a more clear representation of number. What does 4 billion peoplewithout basic sanitation to the complete world population mean? Not much, one cannot make that really visual. 43 on 100 people is something the human mind interpret very well… And that is the only goal of the movie. To make it all more visual and understandable.
Haha, again i disagree :D
