Continuing yesterday’s post, as a few more examples come to mind.
The rich kid may own the fanciest car in town, but when it breaks down in the middle of nowhere, only the mechanic can fix it. And even then, only if he’s got the right tools.
The house may be the most beautiful, but when the pipes leak, only a plumber can save the day.
Speaking of saving, nurses are amongst the most underpaid workers, compared to the relevance of their contributions in saving lives. Whether celebrity or politician, when sick, only a nurse will wipe that drool, clean that dressing and administer those injections.
We all expect shopping packages via ’24-hour delivery’. They are made possible only by truckers who drive long distances for many hours, leaving their families and homes for days on end. But who cares about truck drivers right?
Many teachers can educate us about the ways of the world. But only a Guru can dispel the darkness of ignorance.
Undoubtedly, there is a place for everyone and everything. We are all good-for-something, even though others might think we are good-for-nothing.
No one is self sufficient, although a few who have their heads in the clouds may think so about themselves. It is better to remain on earth and adored, than in the sky and detested.
