I'm poor?

Warning: Guilt trip ahead

I've hear many a college student lament, "I'm poor." I've never liked hearing people say that phrase. When I was growing up I had some friends who always dropped "we're poor" about their family and it drove me crazy. They lived in a house in the suburbs, their parents had two vehicles and they never starved a day in their lives. Well for all of you who have used this phrase, it's time you put it to the test. Click on this website called Global Rich List, enter how much money you make a year and it'll tell you where you rank in the world's earnings. For example, just by my own salary, there are 5.8 billion people in the world poorer than me. If I add together mine and Kelly's salary, it says we're in the top 1% of the richest people in the world.

I don't know how accurate their formula is, but we do live in the most affluent nation in the world. So stop your whining and appreciate all God has given you.
