Morals on Laurels

We live in a world where the boy scouts accept girls, yet have all girl troops. Some fight against the death penalty and for mid-birth abortions.

Yeah, there are people that hoard what little they have, but some people just dream bigger than most of us ever dare. Don’t dog someone for being rich… try to figure out what they know that you you don’t, and try and pick up on the good parts if you can.

Don’t worry about how MUCH some have. Just be happy for the days you have left and the unlimited opportunities in those days.
