Here’s a story from Forbes that adds a little perspective on where our hope lies, and gives me yet another reason that I’m so thankful to have been born and raised in America.
Zhang Shuhong ran a toy company in China that sells in America under the name Fisher-Price. Thousands of their toys had to be recalled recently because of huge amounts of lead found in the paint on the toys. The pressure and humiliation that this created for him led him to suicide.
Read the story, and as you do, ask yourself the questions:
Where did his hope lie?
Where does mine?
