Consider. We lose electricity for ten minutes and won't stop being a baby about it. We walk in from shopping in the sun, run to the fridge and glug down water with a dramatic flourish. We forget our mobile at home and think it's the end of the world. I'd say we're pretty pathetic.
Consider how some mothers have to leave their kids behind. Lose loved ones or constantly expect to every moment. Live without a home, privacy, pride or hope for who knows how long. I'd say we're pretty pathetic.
