May Life Never Be Fair

PJ O’Rourke:

The good things in life are remarkably expandable, but it’s ordinary people who expand them. Look at China, look at India. Yes, it’s upsetting that some people have so much while other people have so little. It isn’t fair. But I accept this unfairness. Indeed, I treasure it. That’s because I have a 13-year-old daughter And that’s all I hear, “That’s not fair,” she says. “That’s not fair! That’s not fair!” And one day I snapped, and I said, “Honey, you’re cute, that’s not fair. Your family is pretty well off, that’s not fair. You were born in America, that’s not fair. Darling, you had better get down on your knees and pray that things don’t start getting fair for you.” [emphasis added]

I am grateful for all the things I should have/be/do and don’t.

Are you?
