    The Same Can Be Boring!

    I do enjoy being around others who are different than me! I like it when a person brings something new to the group. That's most of the fun! :-) I do admit that by different, I don't mean rude or mean people. They are different from me, true. But they're highly...

    It makes the world go 'round. I try to be respectful and open minded until people who are different than me try to push their beliefs on me. Then we're on for contensious debate.

    We Are All Just People

    I don't care if some one looks different or dresses 'weird'. Or If they have had a bad past or other people have already condemned them. I like to make up my mind for myself.  I try to give everyone the same respect i would like to have.

    Accepting Despite My Beliefs

    Understanding who I am and where I am headed is a mystery at this point in my life. I have always believed in the traditional monotheistic G-d of my ancestors. I really, really, believed that life was a response to a set of commandments. Free will is given, but we are free to...

    So someone is different from you or your family. So what? That's what makes the world go 'round. If the entire world was the same from coast to coast, shore to shore,life would be incredibly boring - or there would be no reason to travel anywhere. No reason to say My-country...
