    SO WHAT! IF YOU ARE NOT DRIVING THE LATEST CAR ROLLING ON 24'S,
    THINK ABOUT OTHERS WHO HAVE TO WALK MILES TO WORK

    SO WHAT! IF YOUR GRANDPARENTS NAG YOU TO VISIT,
    THINK OF THE GRANDCHILREN WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LOVING FAMILY MEMBER.

    SO WHAT! IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD A FLY OUTFIT FOR SATURDAY'S PARTY,
    THINK ABOUT A PERSON ATTEMPTING TO RE-ENTER THE WORKPLACE WHO CAN'T AFFORD A SHIRT AND TIE.

    SO WHAT! IF YOU AND YOUR BEST FRIEND HAVE A BIG ARGUMENT,
    THINK ABOUT THE DISFIGURED TEENAGER WHO SITS BY HERSELF AT LUNCHTIME.

    SO WHAT! IF YOU DON'T HAVE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET,
    THINK OF THE MISSIONARY WHO DELIVER MESSAGES TO IMPOVERISHED NATIONS.

    SO WHAT! IF YOUR CABINETS ARE BARE UNTIL NEXT PAYDAY,
    THINK ABOUT A HOMELESS FAMILY SIFTING FOR FOOD FROM A TRASH CAN.

    SO WHAT! IF YOU HAVE A BACK PAIN AND USE IT AS AN EXCUSE TO AVOID WORK,
    THINK OF A PARAPLEGIC WHO WOULD LOVE TO DISCUSS A JOYFUL STING.

    SO WHAT! IF YOU ARE CONSIDERED AND EDUCATED INDIVIDUAL
    THINK OF AN ILLITERATE PERSON WHO CANNOT READ MEDICINE DIRECTIONS.

    SO WHAT! IF YOUR CHILD HAS GOTTEN ON YOUR NERVES FOR THE MILLIONTH TIME,
    THINK OF LAST CHANCE EXPECTANT PARENTS WHO DELIVER A STILLBORN BABY.

    SO WHAT! IF YOUR MAN DOESN'T TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE WHEN YOU ASK,
    THINK OF A WIDOW WHO CLUTCHES A PILLOW FOR SECURITY AND LOVE.

    SO WHAT! IF IT APPEARS YOUR BURDENS ARE TOO MUCH TO BEAR,
    THINK OF THE ELDERLY WOMAN IN INDIA CARRYING A BUSHEL OF POTATOES ON HER BACK.

    SO WHAT! IF PEOPLE TALK ABOUT YOUR DIFFERENCES,
    THINK ABOUT JESUS CHRIST AND HIS PERSECUTORS.
