These words or similar are probably uttered every day here in US and globally.  Think about this.  Close to a billion lottery tickets are sold each year in the US.  As of September 2011, 46% of Americans lived below the poverty line – that is approximately 140,000,000 people trying desperately to make ends meet.  And that is in the world’s largest economy with one of highest standards of living in the world.

Give thanks for what you have.  And what the heck, buy a lottery ticket too….
