Why do people always take things for granted? It is so weird that why do we always take things for granted. When we can walk, hear, breath, see or drink, we all take things for granted. When we look at an elderly, who couldn't even walk by herself and need someone to hold her hand to walk with her. And, as we reach a certain age, we tend to lose physical health gradually. My conclusion is we need to cherish the things that we’ve had.
