Comment on the following statement:
| Some teenagers dream of becoming rich whereas others consider it to be rather dangerous. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some teens think that it is good to be rich, while others belive that it is harmful to your life and character.
I think there is nothing wrong with being wealthy. First of all, having wealth offers a person many opportunities. For instance one can travel a lot or afford to have some luxuries. Second, wealth permits a person to have freedom from certain worries. They do not need to worry about health care costs or the price of food. Being wealthy allows people also to be helpful to others. Rich people, like Bill Gates, sponsor a lot of charitable projects. One can also invest their energy and time into health and education.
At the same time there are people who say that being rich is in not a good way to be because a lot of rich people ignore everything else except for making more money. They evaluate everything by money and as a result they forget about other essantial parts of human lives such as love or friendship.
Well, there is always a danger of falling into the 'money trap', however, these people are more exception than the rule. There are a lot of well-known rich people in Russia and abroad that love and have good friends. Wealth did not spoil them but made them more human. People who struggle to earn enough money to exist rarely have both time and opportunity to have these things which wealth can allow.
In conclusion, I strongly believe that there are almost no absolutely good or bad things. All good things can be misused and turned into bad things and sometimes visa versa. That is why I am sure that riches can be a great thing to possess and use properly for the benefits of others.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight riches might seem dangerous but in actual fact wealth can be a great thing to possess if it is used properly. Thus, I strongly believe that it is good to be rich since it gives a lot of opportunities.
