Luck: to celebrate or hide?

we privilege, specific traits: being beautiful, smart, or athletic. Every society will value specific genetic traits. When being born with them, especially with two or more, it is like being a superhero.

These traits should be celebrated, as the individual can be seen as a model for what’s possible, and equally, the gifted should be humbled by recognizing their luck.
