    Forgiveness

    Having a graduate degree, I obviously don't agree with the Amish view on education. But, I do admire their view on forgiveness. The Nickle Mines tragedy reminded me that forgiveness for anything is possible...if you want it. To free yourself from the bondage of hate, anger, and...

    I admire wit and intelligence when it's apart of a person's personality and thoughts cause it means more interesting talks and less explaining each other.
