There are just some things that I think should be universal because they are a right, not a privilege.
Two of these things are healthcare and education.
The poorest of the poor and the richest of the rich deserve the same, so why is it that money (or lack their of) dictates instead?
I don’t care that rich people can afford a house with three times the amount of bedrooms and bathrooms they need. I don’t care that rich people can afford to have multiple cars each and choose which car they feel like driving that day. I don’t care that rich people can waste thousands of dollars on a meal.
I just don’t care.
You know why? Because that’s a waste. It’s not necessary. It’s foolish.
I don’t bother thinking twice about that.
What frustrates me is the lack of quality education or education altogether for so many people because of where they live or because they can’t afford it.
Just think of how many people die on a regular basis because they couldn’t afford to be treated or purchase the necessary medicines… or live for years untreated when there is a treatment readily available.
It shouldn’t be this way. People deserve better.
P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.
