This poen is amazing not in the sense of tragedy but in the realization
that wordly wealth, in the end, does not matter. Her faith in God brought
happinness in the midst of her despair. She is greatful for what she does
have still and today, in the world, the same idea is not portrayed in our
lives. She sets an example that is necessary for us to follow.

Gabrielle from United States
