...compared to much of the pain and suffering that goes on in this world. This is why it's selfish to constantly feel sorry for oneself. Everyone feels down sometimes, but I think it's selfish for one to dwell on their own problems and pain when there will always be people who are suffering much worse. I think about what's going on in Indonesia, Thailand, India and every place else that was devestated by the tsunamis. I don't feel bad for the dead as much as those who were left behind. They're now saying that some 20,000 (probably many more) children could be orphaned as a result of this catastrophe. Imagine being 8 or 9 years old and losing both your parents, having no place to turn in the midst of such chaos and death. I cannot fathom how some of these poor people must feel. I think incidents like this help some of us to realize how good we really do have it. I don't think people realize how good they have it until they lose it all. But unfortunately, the sadness that many people feel will always be their own, and only their own.
