    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.....

    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.
