Although it takes money to live, people are always attempting to make their lives better by acquiring more and better things for themselves. And there is nothing wrong with that. However, when a person or persons use greed as a motivation to get what they want, and they hurt or harm people in the process, this is not good. Carlos would remind us that ' what goes around, comes around '. Please all you beautiful people around the world, don't let greed motivate you to do the things you do !
