Hello Everyone,

In the United States Declaration of Independence penned in 1776 by Thomas Jefferson you find the quotation "All men are created equal". It has been called an "immortal declaration," and "perhaps the single phrase" of the American Revolutionary period with the greatest continuing importance.

But how bout it? Are we all created equal?

Answer: Certainly not as relates to our genes, natural talents and genetic inheritance.

Here's a great article that tackles the issue honestly.

I look forward to your feedback.

If we were created equal, we'd be the most boring spieces on the planet. Not everyone is meant to be equal or created the same. Individuality is a gift many people forget they have. Even twins or sets of twins aren't 100% equal.

To me, if you're going to fit in somewhere, make it worth your time and energy because if you keep being trying to like everyone else just so you can fit in, you're in a world of hurt. Learn the things in life and use your knowledge to take little things here and there and mold them to your own style. Yes we have greater opportunities than many people 50 or more years ago but we still aren't having the same equalities that others have. I'm all for marrying whoever you want, work with the knowledge you have attained and live a life that flourishes but in the end, it's sad that cannot happen with everyone.

Being equal can work in certain aspects but not everything is going have an equal entity whether it's pay, environment, the personalities surrounded and the markings of others that are very difficult to trust because somewhere out there, great things happen to bad people and horrible things are happening to good people.

Don't be equal to everything.
