Unfrateful 

Today I learnt how ungrateful we, the people, truly are.
I was sat on the train and was asked (along with some other people) to move seats as a wheelchair was coming abroad. 
I was the only one to move. 
Sitting comfortably on the floor I see the man wheeled in, unable to speak or do anything for himself. I’m sure he didn’t want any pity and possibly didn’t even know the meaning of the word but I can’t help but admit it was sad to see. A life wasted and one that would have been better never lived. 
We moan about so much but at least we have that option. The man in the wheelchair had no say in anything.
The next time you or I think we have it tough it would be worth remembering him.
