So lots of people like to drink tea.
But the other day, a nice person was telling me how they drink tea all the time.
It's not just that they like tea, but there was an important true story behind it.
You see, they said, when they were young growing up in a foreign country, they often didn't have enough to eat.
So instead, they had resorted to drinking lots of tea.
They went on to say, that as children, they often had to go to sleep hungry.
It is truly a wake-up call for those of us who, thank G-d, have what to eat and so much choice and plenty in this great country.
Not everyone in the world is so blessed to eat heartily and go to sleep with a full and satisfied belly.
It is especially saddening and tragic when we are talking about innocent children in this world.
As we go from the workweek to the weekend, perhaps it is a good time to reflect on how much we have to be grateful for and to wish blessings of peace, health, and prosperity on all our fellow mankind, here and all around the world. ;-)
