|The Lucky Birth Club|
Thank God for my lucky circumstance of birth, I was born into a life where my parents loved and supported me. I grew up knowing that I was smart and capable, that I was here on this good earth to make it a better place for my family, friends and community. My lucky circumstance at birth allowed a modicum of control over my life and what happened to me. I am truly blessed!
As a society, we tend to blame the less fortunate for being lazy, stupid, or just plain no good. Yet, their only crime is the situation into which they were born, into which they had no control. It's not pretty, it's not nice, but these people deserve our love and compassion. They desperately need education and the support services that will help break the cycle of tragedy. We need to fight fewer wars, quit giving corporate welfare and we'll have plenty of money to provide the social services that so many Americans desperately need.
