You Won’t Believe What These Kids Risk Their Lives For

Our 2014 resolutions may be filled with dreams of a healthier diet, a proper sleep schedule and less procrastination. But there’s something many of us have overlooked for the new year. How about the resolution to be more thankful?

By simply reading this, you already prove that you have a lot to be appreciative of. You have access to a computer and more importantly, you have had an education which taught you how to read. And let’s be honest now. In the midst of worrying about school, work, or what your future will look like, you probably haven’t taken some time out of your day to be thankful for the luxury of literacy, right?

Well, now is the time.

I’m sure many of us can remember some grumpy mornings getting up for school. But in reality, we didn’t have much to complain about compared to kids around the world who walk miles, climb dangerous bridges and risk their life every day simply to get to school and have an education.

You’ll definitely think twice before complaining about early morning traffic.
