live and let live; actions speak louder than words; those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.
What Gives Me Hope
today's young people who are more empathetic than their elders - i hope they always hold onto their compassion
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
to reform the tax code, abolish DOMA, revive the now-defunct balance of power, do away with the Electoral College, encourage voters to use their voice, stop our wars, spend more on education and less on war contractors, hold Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld et al. responsible for war crimes, re-regulate the financial industry, increase social security benefits for people already getting them, make Medicare and Medicaid more accessible to the general public, and make the rest of the world proud of us again.
What/who changed my life and why
Richard Bach - his books have shown me that there are probably more people who care more about others than themselves than i think there are.
