    I Wish

    Children don't choose to come into the world. They are defenseless and dependent on adults in every way. I believe it is the job of parents to provide a safe, healthy, happy home to their children. I feel so horrible for the children in the world who grow up in orphanages and...

    No Fools

    Children live on instinct, that is all they’ve got. They haven’t trained in bullshit, like the adults with a lot. You can never force a child to trust you if it can’t. They don’t use your tactics, they don’t see things at a slant. ...

    Things happened to me that ruined my childhood and eventually ruined me. I don't want to see people go through what I have gone through. I realize that I can't make the world perfect, but I'm going to make a diffrence and, hopefully, save lives. It's loud and here I go.

    When I was a child, there was no happiness. I don't hardly remember a day when I was happy the whole day without feeling some sort of depression. No child deserves that.
