Roll Of Thunder, Hear My Cry

Mama tells Cassie, “Baby, we have no choice of what color we’re born or who our parents are or whether we’re rich or poor. What we do have is some choice over what we make of our lives once we’re here.” What do you think she means by this?

Mama is a wise woman. She tries to tell Cassie that we are all born in certain circumstances. We have no control over what we are born into. We do, however, have free will in the choices that we make to make our futures.
