“If you guys are really wondering if you are ‘burning out mentally’, take a day off and go to your local hospital. Go to the cancer wing, look at a 4 year old, who wont ever see their teenage years, probably wont ever see their next birthday. Go and see someone who is mentally or physically retarded. Or see when a soldier who just came back from the war who doesn’t have a leg anymore. Stare that guy down, look him right in the eyes, and tell him, as you stand there with 2 capable legs, that you are ‘burned out’, that you don’t want to use them. See if that doesn’t kill him right there. Because he’d do anything to have the opportunity”

When I read this it bought a lump to my throat ,

Be grateful for what we have .
