I have everything to be thankful for.
I’ve said all this before on this forum, but I think this is an appropriate time to bring it up again.
I am thankful that I was born an intelligent, good-looking, white male in the middle of the 20th century in the United States of America to (economically) upper-class parents.
I don’t take credit for any of that. All of that was given to me. All of that is pure luck. And I am thankful for it.
I could have been born in a ghetto with an IQ of 70, no role models, a dirt-poor single mom who was addicted to drugs, a culture that emphasized street glory rather than education, and an ugly face to boot.
Nothing I did or ever will do will change any of the above. And the above has affected virtually everything I’ve ever done.
To not see what I have to be thankful for would be ignorant, foolish and, mostly…
To think that I would be where I am today if I were given what that ghetto kid was given would be a delusion of the highest order.
