What Does Your Birthplace Say About You?

 

 

It might seem trivial to you but your birthplace has a lot to do on how you may end up doing in your life. Being born in this world is the greatest lottery and probably the most important one. I say it as a lottery because you don’t make the decision where you will bear or to whom you would bear. We might take it for granted but being born even in a middle-class family is a huge deal.

One could be born to a middle-class family in the USA or to someone living in slums in Africa.

One could be born to great supportive parents or to abusive parents.

One could be born to spend their childhood with his/her parents or to never know who they are.

One could bear to society were hard-work and intelligence would be used to judge competence or skin color and race.

There are several thousand ways where one may lose in this lottery and if they lose then they would have a very hard time breaking out from their socio-economic class. We may argue over it but in my opinion, this world’s system is made by the capitalists. Socio-economic classes are made where one starts weak if they are from not a well-to-do family. Opportunities are never given to the ones born lower in the socio-economic ladder.

They will have a very tough time breaking away from it and reaching the upper levels. When it gets harder for them to break out they accept it as their reality and never try to get out of it. The gap between the rich and the poor is very real and it has very dangerous consequences. If you call life as a race then we at least need to make everyone start from the same point or at least try to do so. Not doing so will result in unintended consequences and that particular country will never reach its full potential.

“Relax, having kids is years away. But can you imagine? Your brains, my charm, our collective good looks… then add in the usual physical abilities dhampirs get.

It’s really not even fair to everyone else.”
― Richelle Mead, The Fiery Heart

“A first child is your own best foot forward, and how you do cheer those little feet as they strike out. You examine every turn of flesh for precocity, and crow it to the world. But the last one: the baby who trails her scent like a flag of surrender through your life when there will be no more coming after–oh, that’ s love by a different name.”
― Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

“This is a place where grandmothers hold babies on their laps under the stars and whisper in their ears that the lights in the sky are holes in the floor of heaven.”
― Rick Bragg

“Don’t stand unmoving outside the door of a crying baby whose only desire is to touch you. Go to your baby. Go to your baby a million times. Demonstrate that people can be trusted, that the environment can be trusted, that we live in a benign universe.”
― Peggy O’Mara

“Calvin: Dad where do babies come from?
Dad: Well Calvin, you simply go to Sears, buy the kit and follow the assembly instructions.
Calvin: I came from Sears?
Dad: No you were a blue-light special at K-Mart – almost as good and a lot cheaper!”
― Bill Waterson

“She watched as he settled down on the bed with Naya skin to skin on his chest. His hand all but covered her tiny body as he stroked her in that changeling way, bonding with her on the most elemental level. Then he purred, and Naya made a happy little sound of delight, very much a cat in her love of touch.”
― Nalini Singh, Kiss of Snow

“The groove is so mysterious. We’re born with it and we lose it and the world seems to split apart before our eyes into stupid and cool. When we get it back, the world unifies around us, and both stupid and cool fall away.
I am grateful to those who are keepers of the groove. The babies and the grandmas who hang on to it and help us remember when we forget that any kind of dancing is better than no dancing at all.”
― Lynda Barry, One Hundred Demons
