Flat Land, Beautiful open skies, endless opportunity, if infact the right choices are made. Choices are given to a child however, many choices are influenced by those the child surrounds oneself with. Whether it be parents, grandparents, siblings, relatives, or friends. Every person in a child's life is going to be the main influence on the outcome of what choice the child will choose. Does this mean someone is to blame? You could spend eternity blaming those around you that "set you up" to make your life the way that is is. Is blaming someone correct? Perhaps in a good scenario it is not blaming but rather thanking someone for "setting you up". If you know the decisions and your direction, whether good or bad, relating that decision to someone else is not only human nature, but also part of the others persons "destiny". Give Credit where Credit is due. Cease the opportunity and learn from both the good and the bad.
