About Me my daughter labeled me "complex". I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and a cancer survivor. Guess I'm pretty hard to knock down..because I just keep getting back up. I am an open minded fighter.

My Philosophy keep searching, eventually you will find the path to yourself, healing and maybe even contentment. Be the best you can be for yourself and don't worry about what others think you "should" do..for you should never "should" yourself.
What Gives Me Hope ongoing cancer research. Also, the youth of our Nation. I can see great possibilities within my grandchildren.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by If I was Mayor, I would first pass a budget that allowed for the police to pay their employees for putting their lives on the line, also the civilians that work in the background deserve the best. They also took an oath like that of the officers. Now the city is cutting wages and personel because of the resession. Anyone that is not union could be booted without notice and those that have been with the city for a number of years, but are not represented are getting a pay cut.
I would also make sure that the schools were a priority. Our schools are really missing out, now that the arts have been taken away..no music..no art. What are these kids doing with the left side of their brain?

    Have you checked out the spirituallity forum here? Depok Chopra stuff is really interesting . I read the artical about intuition and thought it kind of went along with the book we are reading together. I think our strong intuition is one of the things that makes is so close and bonds us so tightly together. I love ya buddy!
