Put Things Into Perspective
So I'm reading this book that Andrew gave me for Chrismukkah. It's a Holocaust book, written by a survivor of Auschwitz, and all I can say is that 1) I can't put it down, and 2) this book is really helping me to put things into perspective. In today's reading session, I found out that Viktor only had one pair of shoes. One pair of shoes to work in, walk in, live in. No socks. Just a pair of leather shoes, that had to weather snow, mud, cold, the elements. And here I am, Miss two-pairs-of-Hunter boots, one pair of Uggs, and all of my "fashion boots". I am fortunate, I am not in need. This book is very good and very serious. It is truthful and helpful. I think everyone should read it.
