YOU SEE HERE MY FELLOW U.S STUDENTS? not just fucken in the US, this goes out for yal kids who go to school for the hell of it. You think school’s bad? How about going to a fucking third-world country and try to make a living?
I’m not speaking from a stranger’s view, I’ve been there, done that, and tbh, I’ve witnessed many kids yearning for education, wanting to go to school, wanting to have friends and live a normal life like other children, whom has nothing to worry about but making their childhood memories. There are those children out there who were born with NOTHING. They didn’t choose to be born into poverty, yet fate’s such a cruel thing. They learned from their parents how to fight for survival, each meal doesn’t have a time-set, and they don’t know what will be waiting for them tomorrow.
Some of these children, though not fortunate enough, but they still managed to go to school. What’s the difference between you and them? They love school. They see their schools and education as a ticket to get out of their hell holes. They wanted to escape what they are going through. They wanted to be different, and better yet, they wanted challenge their unfair fates. And you, (well, maybe not you, maybe someone you know here in more developed countries), pffft, all you wanted to do is just quit school. You have little goals set for yourself, why? Because every goddamn thing is handed to you. Instead of wanting to escape your current situation, you wanted to stay behind forever. Life’s so unfair, right?
You cried when your favorite ipod touch, ipad, laptops or touch-phones is broken. They cried because their books and papers were ruined. What an unfair world we live in.
( The picture above, I know for sure is from Viet Nam, where education is recieved when one has financial support. Many children has to quit because their parents can no longer afford sending them school. Most of those who quit took jobs like selling lottery tickets and cheap souvenirs on the streets, earning around 1 dollar a day. One fucken single dollar per day .. God my heart aches. )
