There are millions of things that people take for granted. Ninety percent of the people living in the United States have running water and electricity. What isn't realized is that only about ten percent of the world has these two luxuries at their disposal. Another luxury that is taken for granted is internet. Internet access is not available everywhere in the world. Twenty years ago, internet was only available to major business, the government, and the military. When it became popular, books were to be considered to be outdated. It was considered to be more convenient and books were used a lot less. People don't realize how nice it is to have internet at their disposal. There are a lot of things that are taken for granted that should be given a lot more credit and respect.
