“Why should we accept that the “talent” of someone who writes jingles for an advertising agency advertising dog food and gets $100,000 a year is superior to the talent of an auto mechanic who makes $40,000 a year? Who is to say that Bill Gates works harder than the dishwasher in the restaurant he frequents, or that the CEO of a hospital who makes $400,000 a year works harder than the nurse or the orderly in that hospital who makes $30,000 a year? The president of Boston University makes $300,000 a year. Does he work harder than the man who cleans the offices of the university? Talent and hard work are qualitative factors which cannot be measured quantitatively.”—
Have you ever hit “Rock Bottom” or at least thought you have hit “Rock Bottom”…..? I’m sure it’s a common thought of those who are struggling in their every day life, work place, classroom or where ever it may be. It’s tough to say where the bottom may be when no one really knows. All we can do is just assume. I’m sure there are billionaires and millionaires who claim they have hit “Rock Bottom”, but what they fail to believe is there are hundreds of thousands of millions who are at the bottom around the world. I just watched this video on worldwtarhiphop.com that showed a homeless man from Jackson, Mississippi but currently roams the streets of LA, California making a way from no way. This man looked like the happiest man alive. The impression he gave during the video, I’m sure is much different from his everyday life. While being interviewed he asked to sing a song he wrote that described what he has been through and what he has seen. The name of the song I believe is “Brother Man”…..Life is to short to live in agony and sorrow. We control who we are, what we do, how we do it and how it happens. Waking up in the morning having an opportunity to attend school, have a job, and put clothes on my back everyday has given me the motivation to believe that my struggle is not as hard as someone else around the world, let alone one just around me. I believe as a human on earth our job is not only to better our self but also the man or women next to you. We are one and no one should be left to hit “Rock Bottom!!!!!!!
