sorry, just one word is a counter-point to everything you've said. if you're born insane you don't necessarily have a chance at success.
look at the homeless population. most of them aren't homeless because they're just lazy and don't work hard enough, most of them are mentally
troubled and don't receive the help they need.
sorry, but you're just wrong here.
I love how rockets totally ignored this comment. I guess you have to pick and choose your battles.
First off, dont give me crap for typos or misspellings. I know I can't spell, and I am not going to check every word for a mistake. Well ok. You
can give me crap if you want, but if that is the only point of your post, what a waste of a comment!
I'm sure the tiny percentage of people who were wrongfully accused and sentenced to prison maybe even death could put up a great argument againts
rockets.....well except for the ones that were senteced to death. If that doesnt constitute a failure then what in the world does?
Children born here of immigrant parents who have an illegal status must leave with parents if deported. Now, if the children are hard working, living
right, law abiding people who positively contribute to their community, something went terribly wrong! (I am not stating my stance on immigration my
point of view on that issue is irrelevant).
A hardworking mother, right above the poverty line, who lost her only son to a senseless robbery/murder. Her health soon after deteriorated as a
result of liver cancer that was diagnosed before her son's death. Of course she was unable to work after a while and had to move down south with
with cousins who helped to take care of her. She was not happy down there, although she would never ellaborate. She felt so alone and depressed, I
guess it was a relief for her to pass away.
The fact is that there are many things in life that can't be controlled and those factors can totally destroy your life. Just being born by a
particular person can screw up your chances of being a "success". No amount of motivational talk is going to get that man out of debt, save his
business, marriage, bring back a dead child, heal sicknesses, or magically make life perfect. All it can do is boost morale.
