At the very foundation of who we are lies our Identity. Would we all be carbon copies of one another floating through life with no self awareness, like that of algae floating in a pond? At the mercy of the elements with no real semblance of ourselves or anything around us. While our Identity is our most personal characteristic, it is also seems to be one that we have limited control over. Is it based entirely on genetics? Is it what our driver's license or passport shows? Or, is it a combination of our ancestral DNA, upbringing, color of our skin, culture, country, lived and unlived experiences, creed, social structures, and countless other ways we distinguish ourselves as an individual while still yearning to be accepted?
