I disagree with you point of view because you’re judging people. Because you got there, whatever you had achieved, (by the way you’re not the only white person to think like this)you want to believe and brag about that ANYONE can do something about their lives! What about those who were killed at the age of 17 years-old for being borned black? For thousand being and being send to prison been inncocent and being able to pay for a good lawyer instead having incompetent one? I believe you read a lot of psicological books, what about our inner incapacity to deal with problems in life because of our terrible childhood? or the lack of role models within our families? and so on… Great for you Kris, you did “all” by yourself, with hardworking! guess what, we’re not alike, but thanks God, otherwise how could someone brag about their achiviements??
