Day two of classes
Today, I was told that I am rich. Even though I was denied for a credit card last month because of insufficient income and my student loans are much larger than I’d like, my Global Studies professor says I am rich. I am sailing around the world on a ship — taking classes and learning through opportunities that many will not experience in their lifetime. During the next few months, I will discover what it means to have the opportunities I have, because I will meet people who barely have education, housing and food. I will be immersed in poverty and strife. I will learn that I am extremely blessed and fortunate to have the life I lead. I am rich, and so are you.
