JFK Jr. Wedding
and wealth, consider the
JFK Jr. wedding to Carolyn Bessette.
Jr. was born and literally raised in the White House during his father's
presidency. JFK Jr. had wealth, as well as fame and good looks. At the time of
his wedding, JFK Jr. was being groomed by the Kennedy clan for a high-profile
political career and an eventual presidential run in his father's footsteps.
The storied JFK Jr. wedding to Carolyn Bessette in the fall of 1996, however,
contrasted sharply with JFK Jr's wealth and was a picturesque yet humble
ceremony on the uninhabited Cumberland Island off the coast of Georgia. The
wedding venue was a small chapel
that did not even have electricity.
What were the ornaments for the ceremony? Just two branches tied together into a cross. The lone costly item was the bride's dress.
The point is this: those confident about their wealth don't have to splurge
or try to to show off
with a lavish wedding
Also consider this: every 5 seconds, a child dies from starvation somewhere in the world, and
the cost to have fed that child a nourishing meal is only 19 cents
per day (source: World Food Program).
So instead of spending 30,000 dollars or 3 million dollars to run with the herd, why not keep it simple, save yourself the time and the stress
(the primary sentiment that many couples express most often after their
, which often become high-stress, year-long productions, is relief
rather than joy) and donate the money your save to saving the lives of starving, innocent children?
Based on the World Food Program numbers above, you can feed nearly 900 kids for a month, long
enough for them to be nourished back to health, for 5,000 dollars.
For 50,000 dollars, that
number rises to 9,000 kids, and for half million dollars, you can save 90,000 children and nourish them back to health.
Please think about that. By having a smaller party for one day, you can save
the lives of hundreds if not thousands of children. Can you think of a
better way to start your marriage than to save the lives of that many
Something else. You clicked
that your money isn't a blessing from God. Are you sure
"There is no God," you say?
