Worst of our problems

After just seeing a documentary about kids growing up in war-torn Palestine and the mess their lives are I was checking out the feedback an e-bay seller got and one neutral comment caught my eye. A comment made on a second hand CD somebody had bought from the seller. About how a second hand CD was not worth the money he paid for it. Two things came to mind. First, why do you then offer to buy it? Second, how simple, how easy, how mindless do we have it here. What comfortable, easy, brainless lives can we lead. How thankfull we should be. The mediocrity, the pointlessness of this persons -self caused- problems are compared to places in the world where people truly suffer.
