Too Comfortable

by KT

I've been thinking lots about the economy and the suffering in Gaza amid my comfort. The whole idea of "being comfortable" bothers me in my soul.

Let's face it, we have a class system in America, even if we deny it. Many of us are so comfortable in our current circumstances, we think that this is the lot for all. With the present suffering going on, this truly bothers me. Just because I'm comfortable doesn't mean that I can assume that there's no suffering. An encouraging note is that several of new President's nominees, have addressed that issue, i. e., the poor, the disparity in lives in our country.

I think there's no shame in having reached a certain level of comfortableness, but not sure that we can automatically assume that we deserve it. I guess what I am saying is that we should not be too comfortable in our comfortableness.

One of the things I think about is that we don't all get dealt the same hand. Simply as fate, we are born who we are, not our fault. We could have been born some poor child filled with anger and hate in Gaza, whose life may soon be over. GOD HELP US in our complacency.
