My dear,

Live simply so that others may simply live.

Think about it. You and seven billion other people share the same stage. And some of them aren’t as fortunate as you. Oh, you don’t think you’re fortunate? Think about it. You can read, have access to a computer, have access to electricity, and have been alive long enough to read this sentence… You are very fortunate.

Sadly, the majority of the people that share the stage with you aren’t as fortunate.

Is it too much to ask that you live without your luxuries so that others may receive necessities? Is it hard for you to live without that $5 that you would use to buy a simple coffee to feed someone for days, even months?

If I told you that living a simple life would lead you to save thousands, no millions, of lives would you do?

I would. In a heartbeat.

Falsely yours,
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
