This past week there was an apartment fire in my city and many people lost everything. We got lucky with our fire, everything could easily be replaced and nobody was hurt. My mom knows of one family who wasn't so lucky. They are staying in a hotel with 3 kids and have nothing. Not a single item they can call their own. This weekend we will be giving this family who we've never met our extra couch and a shelving unit we don't really use. It's not much but we can live without it. Somehow this just doesn't seem like enough.
I feel like our family should do more. Like society should do more to help people out. Everyone gets wrapped up in the "what's in it for me?" part of life and they forget to look at what they do have and be grateful.
