This is a good read, and mimics my own experience…although mine was earned in the pit of the stomach of Corporate America

Why I left the GOP – Salon.com 

The enormity of the advantages I had always enjoyed started to truly sink in. Everyone begins life thinking that his or her normal is the normal. For the first time, I found myself paying attention to broken eggs rather than making omelets. Up until then, I hadn’t really seen most Americans as living, breathing, thinking, feeling, hoping, loving, dreaming,hurting people.

My values shifted —from an individualistic celebration of success (that involved dividing the world into the morally deserving and the undeserving) to an interest in people as people.
