Even if you don't have health insurance at this moment, hopefully sometime in your life you did have it. These days having health insurance is like winning the lottery. I haven't had health insurance for about two years and I am so thankful to have it today. There are so many things that we take for granted everyday. I took for granted the convenience of going to a doctor and getting a prescription for a few dollars. There are people all around the world that don't have the opportunity to do that. When I had health insurance I never knew a life without it. I could go to the doctor even if had a small cough. There are people with curable diseases, but don't have access to medicine. When I became uninsured I realized how good I had it and that in a blink of an eye your life can change. I am grateful for the opportunity to go to the doctor today and I hope one day everyone will be able to have access to medicine. Instead of the right to bear arms, how about the right to medicine?!
