Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 19 People

    ....and now it's haunting my life to a

    Just imagine a divergent mind in the military.

    .. Brain washing simply doesn't exist... Neither does fear... A divergent mind is the only thing that can destroy a divergent mind... Military has no use for us outside of leadership.
