Is life fair?


I think that life is unfair and that one's future is more or less determined by where and by whom he/she is born. Life expectancy in Somalia is I think somewhere around the age of 47. In Canada life expectancy is 78 years for men and 83 years for women. So to begin with (at birth) you can get a "bad" deal. With that in mind can we blame the Somali pirates for taking ships hostage when they are practically starving to death? Or can we blaime a homeless kid for stealing food or pick-pocketing you? Life is unfair ...

    Nail on the head!

    And what people don't realise is that the people who do manage to overcome adversity, don't just do it with effort. Luck plays a big part. Only from that moment onward is it possible to "make your own luck" as (lucky) people say.
