If you were stranded on an island, and had the choice of something to have what would it be? The choice you should make should be a simple one because many of us are living our lives as if we were stranded on an island anyway. The only difference is that we ignore the ones around us and would only notice that they are gone when we are really stranded and then it is too late to wish them back anyway.
