What I Want to Do:


 
I live in Florida. Trust me: Your Vote Does Count!!!!

The Poor Voter on Election Day
by John Greenleaf Whittier
December 23, 1852

The Proudest now is but my peer
The highest not more high.
Today, of all the weary year,
A king of men am I!

Today alike are great and small,
The nameless and the known.
My palace is the people's hall,
The ballot box my throne.

Who serves today upon the list
Beside the served shall stand;
Alike the brown and wrinkled fist,
The gloved and dainty hand!

The rich is level with the poor,
The weak is strong today.
And sleekest broadcloth counts no more
Than homespun frock of gray.

Today let pomp and vain pretence
My stubborn right abide.
I set a plain man's common sense
Against the pedant's pride.

Today shall simple manhood try
The strength of gold and land;
The wide world has not wealth to buy
The power in my right hand.

While there's a grief to seek redress
Or balance to adjust,
Where weighs our living manhood less
Than Mammon's vilest dust -

While there's a right to need my vote
A wrong to sweep away,
Up! Clouted knee and ragged coat -
A man's a man today!

About Me I am a member of the Religious Society of Friends (Quaker). Therefore, I am against any armed conflict, the death penalty, and any Social or Economic injustice. I am in service to my fellow humans. I believe that God has revealed Himself to ALL of his creation in a way that they can understand. It would be arrogant of us to try and change those beliefs that are different from ours. All religious beliefs are right for the people who believe them. Animals are not ours to use as we want. God gave us dominion over his creation. That is not synonymous with exploitation. I think we're doing a poor job as His caretakers, and our planet needs immediate attention.

Wild Fact About Me My husband of 30 years is 30 years older than I am. We recently converted a large part of our property into a backyard wildlife habitat. It has been certified by the National Wildlife Federation.
When I travel, I like to visit the local cemetery.
My Philosophy God is perfect and makes no mistakes. Therefore nobody's lifestyle, sexual orientation, or religious belief is offensive, or sinful, to Him.
What Gives Me Hope That there are enlightened people in the world who see, and seek, the truth.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by End the War in Iraq, bring all the GIs home, and try to hug every one of them as they stepped off the plane. I would also outlaw Greyhound racing.
What/who changed my life and why Florence Nightengale. When she cared for the soldiers wounded in the Crimean War, she saved so many from death through her infection control procedures and nutritional reforms. They loved her and appreciated her selflessness. When she would take her oil lamp and walk her rounds during the night, the soldiers would touch and even kiss her shadow as it was cast on the wall as she passed them. She would forever be known as the "Lady With the Lamp".
What Bugs Me Ignorance

    If only I could have a friend
    Who sticks with me until the end
    And walk along beside the sea
    To share a bit of moon with me
    I'd take my friend most everywhere
    La la la la I wouldn't care
    And we'll stay away from crowds
    With signs that say no friends allowed
    Oh we...we'd be so happy to be...
    We...we'd be so happy to be together...

    Small April sobbed I'm going to cry
    Please give me a cloud to wipe my eye
    Then April Fool she laughed instead
    And smiled a rainbow overhead.
