Teenage Affluenza

Here’s a link to a video that parodies materialism in the suburbs. It contrasts the woes of middle class teens to the struggles of third world children.Some days I forget to count my blessings. I moan about being squeezed out of the housing market and the rising cost of living.

Then there are days when I clearly see that I am rich beyond measure. I have access to clear air, water, wilderness, food and jobs.

This video is an embarrassingly familiar reminder that we have very little to complain about – and so much to do.
