    I'm Guilty of It!!!

    I am really guilty of doing this and I don't often stop to wonder why. This is just one example, my friends mother didn't want her as a child and either did her dad, so her dads mother and father took her in. They were old fashioned people and had no idea of what life was like...

    Many People Simply Do Not Care Anymore How They Act.
