"Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked. "OhYeah" said the son. "So what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father. The sonanswered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool thatreaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We haveimported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reachesto the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land tolive on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serveus, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have wallsaround our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them."With this the boys father was speechless. Then his son added, "Thanks, dad forshowing me how poor we are."
