things people wait in line for

MY APPROACH to Christmas this year was affected by this photo, “First World vs. Third World Problems” posted by @mikerusch on Twitter on Black Friday (the day after US Thanksgiving, typically a huge holiday shopping day). I just came across it on my desktop and wanted to share it with you. No, I didn’t ditch Christmas or anything, but the photo did have an effect.

  1. Belinda says:

    It certainly does put things in perspective in a powerful way.


  2. This is a very compelling contrast. Many times I try to go through the day giving thanks for the wonders we can take for granted: fresh water, hot running water, refrigeration, grocery stores, good roads, basic safety. If nothing else happens in my life, I am incredibly blessed simply by being here in this place at this time.
