                       The Path We Choose
The path of our lives are Destin by the influences of others and the environment in which we are born into.
The teaching of our parents or the lack of, will in most case be the deciding factor in our young lives forever!
By the time that we are old enough to make intelligent  decisions on our own,
those prior teachings are inedible engraved in our young minds, and are seldeomly
questioned. Any facts contraire to our beliefs will quickly be dismist as false.
This system places us all in a precarious position.
We are condemned to live our lives forever locked in a
mental box!
In most cases, those teaching and customs are never applicable to change.
Therefore in most case we remain just clones of our forfathers.
For the very few that excape that little box, there wiil be no end to their ingenious!
Note: Over eighty years, this is my observation of human nature; not a judegment of same.
