Once a wealthy parent took her son to a trip to the countryside with the aim that it saw how poor were certain people and understand the value of things and how lucky they were. They were a day and a night at the farm of a very humble peasant family. At the end of the trip, already back at home, he asked his son:

-Do you think of the trip?

-Very nice, Dad!

-Did you see how poor and needy people can be?


- And what you learned?

-I saw that we have a dog at home, they have four. We have a twenty five metre pool, they a stream without end. We have imported in the patio lamps, they have the stars. Our patio reaches the wall House, theirs to the horizon. Especially, Dad, I saw that they have time to chat and live together in family. You and my mom must work all the time and hardly ever see them.

The father stayed silent and the child added:

-Thanks, Dad, for showing me the rich that we could be.
