So agree. Here’s the thing. We won the birth lottery. Every damn one of us with an Internet connection and open on our screen.

We don’t wake up every day terrified of whether today is the day the bombs hit our house instead of the neighbor. We don’t wake up hungry wondering if maybe today will be the day there’s food. We don’t ever have to decide which child has to die because there isn’t enough for both of them. Etc.

And what do we do with it? Spend it chasing the status quo and doing what everyone else says is the grown-up/responsible thing to do. One shot. No replay. Go.
