Ask a Different Question

Becky Thompson, 15

devozine Why Not Me TS 100943663After another day of my same tired routine — getting up, going to school, coming home to an unwelcoming family — I lay in my room wondering, Why me?

But sometimes I wake up thinking, Why not me? I could be doing manual labor for little money, going hungry, or sleeping on a dirt floor.

This week, whenever you begin to wonder Why me? — stop and think, Why not me? 

Let us know if it makes a difference!
