wealth is not how much money you have but how you perceive the life you lead. The boy was right, the girl wrong.

#12 - I dunno - rather than boycott soccer, how about we just tax people and corporations proportionally according to their wealth rather than allowing the rich so many tax breaks..? Seems pretty obvious to me.

There are many kids like that today and there
have been for a long time now.
Not just because of the economy.
Some children in our schools only get a breakfast because of there free or reduced lunches.
Thank God we have programs for them.
Everyone hasn't been blessed like you and I.
The smallest one's get hurt too.

I voted up eventhough that jealous girl at the end ruined it. If there really is a kid out there like that he's going to be an awesome big brother.

#15 Oh great,so we tax the owners of businesses and corporations to the point where it is no longer profitable for them to continue operating their companies so they just fold up operations and move to another country.
Now what are all the people who had been working for those companies going to do?
Enough of that has been happening in the US for too long. "Punish the wealthy" is the socialist mantra.

Ahh... I've never lived that poor, ever but we were pretty damn close. But life with no money is hard growing up. It struck a cord in me....

If he continues perceiving things in such a positive way, and adults won't talk him out of it, he will be a happy person all his life. Wonderful little story..<3
