I was excited to go to my "root" country of El Salvador, and see where my parents grew up.
I already knew that the conditions there were not the best, and that things were going to be different compared to home.
I, however, was still surprised.
There were young children, sweeping the streets and washing windows just to earn some measly coins.
Whole neighborhoods had sporadic access to running tap water, due to an unbalance in the utility system.
It made me aware of how lucky I to be staying in the area that I was in. I had basic amenities, plus some luxuries.
It especially made me feel lucky to be born and living where I am.
Sometimes when I get frustrated and wish that I could be somewhere else, I think about what I saw. I meditate on it, and feel grateful for being here.
