As it turns out it matters how and when we mark our birth. I am a living breathing human being born alive and yet legal fictions make the claim I am lost at sea with no life. I state, for the record, that I exist alive from the moment my mother and father’s genetic material combined. I am a living being since this moment – as I passed through the birth canal already alive for nine months. I make this claim for evermore. I am not, and have never been, lost at sea. What is your claim?
