The a much needed group hug

Life would be so much easier if we all stepped off the same platform at birth, but it would be a much more duller world. There are many misconceptions when it comes to a child’s absorption of their surroundings. A friend of mine once quoted “ an apple doesn't fall far from the tree.“. I disagree, depends where the tree was planted, which one fell and rotted which rolled down hill and which set seed. The statement is a excuse to place blame. We do have choices, it has nothing to do with who we are, or does it? If we stir up the genetic pool does the blend induce a pragmatic view, a more factual “ what is”?. I pondered over my childhood years, and the path that brings us to this point in our lives.
Let’s review this hypothesis, if a child never saw red, would they know red when they saw it? One might say certainly not , another view might be if they were educated and told what red might look like they would be able to identify it. Will go a little further, if a child never felt love would it know love when it was presented to them? I say undeniably yes. With all facts set aside, humans consist of mass and emotion. You don’t have to be taught what feels good, you will know what feels good
.Smiling ... as I envisioned the world getting a much needed group hug.
