    It's really rather odd how my life has gone. I look at it, and I look at where I've come from. Understandably, the past looks grim, and it looks quite desolate. I can hardly imagine a child going through the life that I had, and I can even more scarcely imagine him doing it...

    It's Not Going to Magically Happen

    It's up to all of us to make it happen. I just wish I knew how. I can't fix the world alone, and seeing as how we can't even get everyone to vote, I'm not sure how I can get them to really help change this world for the better. Any ideas anyone?
