some people born rich while others are not that well off. a while ago my neighbor was hospitalized and she doesn't have any money to pay the hospital. i helped her seek money but sadly we failed. then this pop in my mind is the world really unfair?

first off I'm sorry about your neighbour...I hope she figures it out and can get the money together....That said, yes the world can and is at times unfair...and it seems like those who are less fortunate are the ones who get kicked when they are down...

I belive that life is like a test, everyone has problems both big and small. We don't get to choose or controll what problems will come our way.Peoples problems depend on who they were born from and what lifestyle they are living. All I can say is that no matter what problems we have, we all have to do whats best. This may be harder than it sounds, but this is true.

Sometimes life is unfair. We have people who would be good parents, but they cannot have children and not only that cannot afford to adopt. We have rich people who are very ill and their money does not cure them. We have poor people who are very ill and they think that if they had the money, they would be cured. So life is unfair in that not everything goes as it should. It is due to original sin that messed things around so that bad things happen to good people, and good things happen to bad people. I do hope your friend finds the money, but I do not know unless someone donates the money for her.

Life is not fair. I just isn't designed that way. The same struggles wouldn't teach everyone the same lesson. We can make life seem more fair by helping those less fortunate than we are, for some day we may be the less fortunate. I sometimes catch myself playing the "what if" game, but I try not to. It doesn't do me much good. What if my parents would have been very rich? Is there any way to know how my life would be different, not really. Read the book "Loving What Is" and be happy for all that is.
