One major lesson I've learned while in Liberia was: be grateful.
Be grateful that you have electricity, that you have running water, food on your plate, everyday luxuries, and so much more. Most importantly though:
Be great full you have an education.
While in Liberia, almost all of the kids I interacted with or heard about had a common trait: they wanted and education.
Wanted. They wanted and education. To me that is crazy, because these kids that have so little understand just how important education is, and how lucky those are who have it, yet I see so many people in the States who treat their education like trash and take it for granted.
I could go on and on about this topic, so let's leave it at that.
