As a father, there are so many things in this world that distress me, but which I cannot fully relate to or completely understand. Even though I have been unemployed, I cannot relate to not being able to provide for my family. Even though I have moved my family frequently, I do not know what its feel like to be homeless. Even though I have lived with my family in two African countries, I have not feared for their lives. I receive news of disasters around the world all day, every day, and as much as I try to put myself in the shoes of disaster victims, I still cannot help but take my own blessings for granted. That pains me.
