Did we choose our parents? Did we choose our color, personality traits, and location? Are we so sure that we were going to be born in this world? We could’ve died with various reasons. Parents or mothers could’ve decided not to bring us out in this world. So is this life ours?
What are we complaining about? …about what we don’t have? Are we using our capabilities well? Do we realize that each person is so unique?

“The Greatest Gift” is a 1943 short story written by Philip Van Doren Stern which became the basis for the film It’s a Wonderful Life. The hero George was ready to commit suicide, and then a man took him to a world where he was never born. Everyone who knew him took different and often negative steps in life because George had never been born: including his little brother, who he had saved in a pond accident and instead had died without George to save him. He realizes that the greatest gift he has is his life.
The best gift we got in this world is our life. We all have to be happy and grateful about our life. The gift we can give to this world is what we do with our life. Live this life in its full extent!
