I'm the kind of person who skips to the conversation when reading a book.

First World Problems

“It’s a First World Problem,” my sister said to me.  I can’t remember what it was in reference to but it could have been almost any issue that people complain about in the wealthy part of Southwest Florida where she lives.  She recognizes how incredibly blessed she is to live in such a beautiful area, but many people don’t.

I hadn’t heard that term before — First World Problem — but I liked it.  Andrew used it the other day, talking about someone who wanted to buy $600 jacket but the store had sold out their size.

“It’s a First World Problem,” he had said, laughing, because he, too, recognized that so many people around the world would never dream of spending $600 on one piece of clothing.

So, when I saw this video on Facebook, I figured that maybe I would share it.

For your viewing pleasure — First World Problems in Third World Voices.  And consider your blessings today.
