    I haven’t read your full article yet because I am in a hurry. However, just by the title of it, here is my comment. If we really look at our lives and look at how much we have (even those who have “nothing”), sometimes it is easy to be thankful for those things which make us “different” than the rest of the world. When we read about things on the net, things in the news, and when we see what “lots’ of people, young and old are doing ,sometimes we can honestly say, “Thank God I am not like the “majority” or not like the “average” person. Nice name for a topic. I will be back to read it at another time. Thank you.
