Los seres humanos no nacen para siempre el día en que sus madres los alumbran, sino que la vida los obliga a parirse a sí mismos una y otra vez.
- Gabriel García Márquez (March 6, 1927-April 17th, 2014)[human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves]

Most people say that the Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, etc. is the most intense show, but the fourth season of The Wire stands above them all.  The Red Wedding is nothing compared to seeing kids in their early teens being fucked for the rest of their lives by underfunded, under-performing, and uncaring institutions.  

But the whole time it wasnt the schools that failed them. It was their parents who failed them long before that.
Dukie and Mike were the sons of drug addicts which forced Dukie to become one and made Mike had to find a way to take care of his little brother.
Randy’s parents (Cheese and Prop Joe’s family) abandoned him forcing him into the foster care of Ms Anna
Namond’s mom literally forced him onto the corner.

'If go to ask somebody about the war, you don’t ask them about the war. You ask them about where they came from, who their parents are. The war becomes part of the texture of their life, and then people will tell you about the war.
