    For Others

    I practice accepting others for who they are. Cheesy sounding I know, but I truly feel this way. After all, I have no right to infringe upon what people hold as their beliefs, morals etc. Sure, I will encounter people I don't agree with, but that's when the magical word TOLERANCE...
