HAPPINESS is essential to every person on this planet. When so many things separate us from one another, happiness unites us as humans.
Our words have the ability to bring sorrow or happiness. We smile and say “hello” to a stranger and never know its wonderful impact. That person’s sorrow and pain may have been lightened for a while.
Children with luxurious gifts and toys can be happy, but so can children in developing countries who gather to kick a soccer ball. However, it would be nice to have children in poorer countries have computers to gain an education. Bill and Belinda Gates of Microsoft (and others) are making this happen.
Throughout the planet, we wake up in different worlds. Here in Canada, I am fortunate to have slept on a bed in a safe environment. I will use water to shower, look into the fridge to find food and go to work. These things are often denied to others.
