Girl Rising

Last Thursday I went to the showing of the movie Girl Rising at Wheaton. I thought it was very well-done and definitely quite thought-provoking. It really made me think about how much we take for granted here in the US. Children here, myself included, are constantly complaining about getting up early for school, having to do so much homework, and having to take certain classes that they might not like. Whereas in many other countries around the world, children risk their lives everyday just to get an education. The amount of joy that just learning to read and write gives children in third world countries is incredible, and it makes me realize how thankful I should be for all the amazing opportunities I have here in the US.
