    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...

    Not Only Standing Up For What Is Right.....
