Let’s be clear about snowflakes:
You can’t have the job you want, just because you want it.
You won’t get a trophy just for being at the race.
It’s interesting to see on the news how the idea of being a “snowflake,” a unique, special person, is synonymous with entitlement.
You are not entitled to anything . . . well, except for one thing.
That’s love and empathy from other human beings.
Your existence doesn’t grant you the right to anything you want.
That would be, of course, ridiculous.
What’s also ridiculous is the idea that you’re born with NO rights.
And on America’s independence day, we have a chance to evaluate our inalienable rights and who is entitled to them.
Personally, I’d like to live in a world where we think about others before we form a belief about who we think they are.
I’d like to live in a world where everyone has an equal shot at the life of their dreams.
