I watched the movie "Born into Brothels" last week, and liked it. It amazed me how resilient all the people--kids and adults--were.

In any event, in one scene a little girl of roughly 8, who was essentially working as a slave for her mother in a brothel in Calcutta, said, approximately: "I think I can be happy being poor. You just have to understand life is pain and suffering, then you can be happy."

What do you all think of this statement?
