    I Don't Get It!

    Some actions jst don't make sense to me. Racism not the least of all. Some things, I just don't see the thought behind. But then maybe I'm just too logical with things. I don't understand the thought behind bending the spine of a book :P One thing I've been thinking about...

    I Know One Thing: We Are Not P...

    I know one thing: We are not perfect. Everybody has done something wrong at one time or another. But other things, like why people insist on everyone being just like them, and crushing the people who aren't, that confuses me.
