    Maybe

    It's impulse for me. If I see someone getting verbally attacked online or something, without thinking I will stand up for them so long as I know I'm not standing up for someone who deserves to have people flaming them. It's not fun, though, nor do I like it at all. Yeah, I...

    Very Little Gray

    Could it be "in my blood?" I don't know. Is it a "gift" to feel this strongly? I don't know that either. Was it "environmentally" influenced? Not sure, but I DO know I was taught not to bring ink pens or pencils home from work, such things are company property, not items up for...

    We need more people to say "why the **** not"

    and get off their *** and get **** done. Who cares if people don't agree? Who cares it you stumble? Who cares if it's hard and long and difficult? Isn't it worth it? If you stand for nothing, you fall for everything.
