How poor are you really?

One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people can be. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, “How was the trip?” “It was great, Dad.”

“Did you see how poor people can be?” the father asked.

“Oh Yeah” said the son.

“So what did you learn from the trip?” asked the father.

The son answered, “I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.

We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.”

With this the boy’s father was speechless. Then his son added, “Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are.”

Too many times we forget what we have and concentrate on what we don’t have. What is one person’s worthless object is another’s prize possession. It is all based on one’s perspective. Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for all the bounty we have, instead of worrying about wanting more.

2 year old somoking 40 a day!!

Ok i dont know where to begin on this video.. a 2 year child smoking 40 fags a day!!

To start with how can a father insist his son is healthy? i mean just look at the bloody size of him!!! does he look healthy to you?

This brings many topics into discussion and totally lost as to where to begin, so im just going to rant best i can.

If mr indonesia your child is healthy today (accordingto you) will he be healthy tomorrow? Because we all know that smokers become ill later in life, not straight away! If someone starts smoking in their early teens we know the repurcussions of this.. but what about a child who starts at the age of 2!

We know the risks and effects of passive smoking too so this wont be healthy for long i assure you if he is smoking at the age of 2!!! argh it makes me so mad!!!

And how does he afford to pay for this habit? Did anyone notice the child has no clothes on.. mind you not many of them did! So for a family not to have money for clothes or a proper house etc.. they have enough money for their child to smoke 40 fags a day! and keep in mind the father smokes too.. oh and he looks so dam proud .. unbelievable!!!!

So my questions is .. could the video be fake?

But how do we or his father justify this, how can a child be smoking like this.. and what hope is there for the rest of them?

Mind you he does look so cute 😉
