The thing with privilege is that many of those who have it, fail to see beyond it. This often comes naturally due to our limited perception. But it is important to broaden our horizons and minds and see beyond our privileged lives. For that, we should be able to acknowledge and understand the struggles of others, as well as appreciate and contribute to their progress. Only then, the wheels of our nation will truly be oiled for us to leap forward.
