Get a grip!

My mood this morning…

I have food, shelter, warmth, education, healthcare all the essentials and then no end of luxuries. There are people who have no clean water, not enough to eat, no access to education, no healthcare. There are people literally dodging bullets and yet I frequently hear young “adults” having a hissy fit because the Sky TV box keeps re-setting, or not enough likes on Facebook or “he hasn’t texted back…it’s been like three minutes!” Seriously, get a grip!

I once stood in the bottled water aisle of a large supermarket and huffed and sighed because, in spite of the dozen different brands in various permutations, they had run out of 6 x 1 litre packs of Evian. Then the shame hit me. Really? I’m cross because of this, when millions of people don’t have clean water?

It seems utterly ridiculous that so many people are starving when so many people are suffering through excess. People malnourished through lack of food yet in this first world of plenty, there are people who are malnourished because they stuff themselves with junk.

Oh and the sense of entitlement which seems so prevelant lately…don’t get me started on that!
