Why do we struggle against the odds? Is it an inherent trait among humans? No, it's seen in many other species too. The salmon that swim upstream to spawn and die along its banks. Birds and butterflies that migrate thousands of miles with each changing of the season.
It's the will to survive that we all share. The instinct in us has been tamed by socialization and an easier lifestyle. If push comes to shove, however. We humans can push with the best of them. It's universal, it's the same with all ethnic groups and all religions.
The Magical Hummingbird travels thousands
of miles each season.
I do not know what makes this way, most likely it's in our genes. It's self preservation. I'm glad it's there. It keeps me going. I have gotten so depressed at times with things that I've had my pistol out and ready but, that gene kicks in and I shove those thoughts out of my head. I'm not ready to quit yet. There's more in life I want to do and I will given the chance.
