The three legged dog does not complain about its situation. It doesn’t whine about having less than other dogs. It doesn’t lay around all day waiting for others to come and take care of it. The three legged dog goes about its business without complaint.
The three legged dog will still wag its tail, play with children, and get the most out of its life. It doesn’t think about the life it could have if only it still had four legs. It doesn’t envy other dogs for their extra legs and ability to run faster. The three legged dog accepts life as it is and does the best it can with what it’s been given.
I wonder if Americans should be more like the three legged dog. Instead of whining about what is wrong with our lives, we should appreciate what we have and do the best that we are able. Instead of lying around and looking for assistance from others, we should get back to work, look out for our own, and go about our business without complaint. Instead of envying those who have more and demanding that they do more for society, Americans should follow the example of the three legged dog.
