You are the 1%

You are the 1%

Everyone reading this post has access to the Internet.  You probably have food in your fridge.

while others are starving to death.

You probably have heating and cooling in your home.    I am sure if you are reading this, you have indoor plumbing.

Back in the old days they went outside sometimes in the middle of the night to poop. 

They had to check the hole for animals and the smell could be pretty horrible.

You all have toilet paper.

You know what they used before toilet paper?

Probably all of you have a stove and a microwave. 

You have water to drink that comes to your house and all you have to do is turn it on.

You have water that is heated in your bathtub.  You can control whether it is hot or cold.

These awesome features were not available 100 years ago. 

So for most of human history, no one had what you have today. 

You are the 1%.  You are the rich.  You are privileged.

So stop complaining.
