Where we are born or who we are too is the luck of the draw.
I have been curious about Lorraine Pascal's origins. She was born to Caribbean parents, but she has very fine features, not typically Afro Caribbean.
Watching Brian Cox's new program last night, there was an Ethiopian girl shown that could have easily been her sister, she was the image of Lorraine.
This got me to thinking, here we have two beautiful women, one born in relative poverty and another born into relative prosperity.
Lorraine was able to control her life to become the person she is now, the Ethiopian girl only had the option to survive.
Not sure where these thought are going, but luck has a lot to do with life's outcome. We can all make the best/worst of our lot, but we need the cards to be dealt well.
Irritating personality traits haven't softened - do friendships change?
Needed but feeling left out - do others feel the same?
