Have you ever had one of those days that just makes you realize how blessed you are?  Well today was like that for me.  I have friends that are being forced to deal with problems that no teenager should have to face alone.  It just made me take a good look at my life and realize how good I have it.  Just having two parents who love eachother and me puts me in a minority of the world’s population.  Their support has allowed me to go to college, pursue numerous weird hobbies and become someone I hope they are proud of.  I’ve realized that my life so far has been pretty easy.

Then I wonder: Why me?  Why did God give me this wonderful life and not the girl across town?  I am not any more deserving of it than another person.  One thing keeps coming to mind as I think about this: To whom much is given, much is expected.  In recognizing that I am blessed, it is important to see others have not been so lucky.  If I have the opportunity and resources to help them, I should.
