Student proclaims that URI has plenty to be thankful for
Although we all have plenty of complaints, it's not all that bad here. And in the light of Thanksgiving, we should recognize that we're actually pretty lucky to be here.
While you're complaining about how much you hate URI and it wasn't your "number one" school, remember that there were thousands of high school graduates who couldn't attend college because their family didn't have the money to send them. You're fortunate to be here.
While you're complaining about the hike up the hill to Swan Hall, remember that there are women and children in Africa that walk up to 8 miles just to get fresh water. The walk to Swan isn't that bad.
While you're complaining about how bad the food is, remember there are 925 million people in the world who are starving. You should be able to find something satisfying in either of the two dining halls.
You don't like your dorm? Be thankful you have a room. Remember that there are more than 636,000 people who are homeless in the United States. They don't have a home to sleep in tonight - you do.
I'm sure there are many more things that we complain about: the cold weather, the hard professors, the lack of treadmills at the gym and how URI Secure almost never works, we should really be more thankful and see how lucky we are to be here. GO RHODY!
