So Lucky

Every time I go to my internship, I realize how lucky I am for so many things that I never really even thought about:

- That I didn't have a kid while in middle school or high school.
- That I always had money to pay for my lunch.
- That I lived with my parents, and not in some youth center.
- That I wasn't homeless.
- That I had never been in jail, and was not forced to wear an ankle band that tracked my movements.
- That it didn't take me five or more years to graduate high school.

These are just a few of the things that I have seen in just a few weeks of my internship. And the things above don't seem to be uncommon there. I'm so lucky.
