Privilege

(noun)
;a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group.
"education is a right, not a privilege" 
synonyms:advantage, right, benefit, prerogative, entitlement, birthright, due;
My mother gave me a book each time I was good or bad, she said it helped in any case.  A book for when I failed and a book for every successful milestone. A book for when I came first in class and a book for when I lied. She taught me even what she herself had never learnt. To be born not with a silver spoon in your mouth but with books in your blood and so much potential in your soul is a privilege indeed.  

I went to one of the best schools in the city of Mumbai, followed by a college that exposed me to people I admired and wanted to ape at the same time. The achievers, the intellects, the poets and the occasional genius. I was privileged to have a light to read by, a book that was not snatched away from me by force or circumstance and parents that pushed me to be my best.  But there are children all around us, that are never able to see their true potential or ever hold a book. Let's make use of our privilege?

This year has been particularly difficult for me for various reasons.

I could be spiteful, angry and annoyed (Which I was). Or whine about it to anyone who would listen (Which also I did). Or I could start a fundraiser and make myself and some kids who really deserve an education happy. (Which I am doing) 

So, show me how great people can be and give some kids a year back at school. 

RESTORE MY FAITH IN HUMANITY!
