One day the father of a wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country to show him how poor people live.
They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of a very poor family.
After returning home, the father asked his son, “How was the trip?”
“It was great, Dad.”
“Did you see how poor people live?” the father asked.
“Oh yes”, said the son.
“So, What did you learn from the trip?” asked the father.
The son answered:
“I learned that we have one dog and they had four.”
“We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden and they have a creek that has no end.”
“We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.”
“Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.”
“We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that stretch as far as the eye can see.”
“We buy our food, but they grow theirs.”
“We have paid servants to serve us, but they happily serve each other.”
“We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.”
The boy’s father was speechless.
Then his son added:
“Thanks, Dad for showing me how poor we are.”
