The Choice

Imagine a wealthy celebrity who has every material advantage imaginable. His life is permeated with pleasure, adventure, excitement and romantic escapades. He enjoys the finest foods, wines, clothes, cars, and homes.

Now imagine a young girl, an orphan, who has inoperable, terminal brain cancer. She lives out her life in mild but chronic discomfort, in a hospital with no family or friends save hospital staff members who have befriended her.

The orphan is the brightest, kindest, most generous, most compassionate, most courageous, most enjoyable person you have ever met. The celebrity is the most cruel, impatient, unkind, crude, and lascivious person you have ever met.

Which person would you rather be?
