" I've never understood why life isn't the same for every human being on the planet. Considering we're all literally the same specie, why is there so much discrepancy in the quality of life across the globe? It hurts me to see how one an forecast the quality of life of a person based solely on which family and where she/he is born. We need to fix this; a good life should not be a privilege restricted for only some. "
