I know just what you mean. A few years back, I had the privilege of working for the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation (VVAF). At the time, VVAF operated clinics that provided wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and braces to people with disabilities in 11 third world countries, most of which had populations who became disabled because of landmines. (VVAF was the co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for founding the International Campaign to Ban Landmines.)

Seeing every single day what a comfortable, charmed life I live and all the opportunities I have because I happened to be born to my parents was a truly humbling experience that stayed with me.
