    I'm Such a Chicken

    I wish that I could tell people what I really thought/felt without having that sick feeling of being bashed or made to feel stupid/ignorant. I don't have a college education, I don't know big fancy words. Honestly, I know very little about a lot (if that makes sense). Maybe I'm...

    Speaking Without Being Put Down

    "Speak the Truth In Love"
