Celebrities Who'd Rather Give Than Flaunt Their Riches Deserve More Respect

Giving back to those who need it is more important than holding up a rich image.

Celebrities Who'd Rather Give Than Flaunt Their Riches Deserve More Respect

Wealth is an interesting thing. There are people out there making more money in one week than some people will make in their entire lives. There are people out there who are capable of getting whatever they want, whenever they want, while there are others who are working multiple jobs just to keep up with bills and support their families. The fact that some people can live such a lavish lifestyle while others struggle each and every day is astounding. Though, that is why so much respect should be given to those who are well off yet choose to help those who need it.

Some people are simply put in better circumstances than others. Of course, there are so many cases where people have worked incredibly hard for what they have, but there will still always be cases where certain people are born into a life with a better opportunity than others.

Those who choose to use their wealthy position to help those who need it should be highly respected. Instead of spending all of their money on materialistic objects and expensive vacations, they are choosing to pick up others that are stuck in a set of negative circumstances. While they are wealthy, high up individuals, they do not look at themselves as if they are better than anyone else. They rather offer up the perks of their position in order to have others live a more comfortable life.

Whether it be donating to victims of the California wildfires or coastal hurricanes, paying for vital medical treatments, or simply gifting necessary items to hardworking individuals, these are people that deserve so much respect.

These individuals are humble, helpful, and care about the wellbeing of others more than they care about holding onto a certain image. They do not broadcast their actions to make themselves look good, they simply do it because they would rather help than see others suffer.

I will always have a sense of respect for these people, whether they be celebrities, athletes, politicians, etc. They see their wealth as a position to help others and give back to those who need it. While these people are becoming few and far between, I am thankful there are people out there who would rather help others thrive than only fund a lavish lifestyle. If more upper-class citizens offered this kind of help, maybe we could reach a greater sense of peace.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
