Dear Diary (12)

Holiday Day 12

Dear Diary:

Walking around some of the poorer areas today reminded me of how lucky I've been in life. My family was poor but I've worked hard and have been given opportunities to create a better life. I think it behooves us sometimes to revisit where we came from and to remember all the helping hands we've had along the way. It keeps us humble.

And, irrespective of where we stand politically, I hope we can agree with the sentiment in this quote from Michelle Obama...

To all those who have given me a helping hand, THANK YOU!
