"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar." –Julius Caesar

About Me saddened by current administration's total ignorance and corruption and attempts to stifle just about everyone interested in civil rights for all. I'm a MADD, and support various causes to educate people to become literate and informed, in order to empower themselves and make a difference, whether in their own life or the lives of many. My personal attribute preferances have nothing to do with looks.I like all people, no matter their "outer" appearance--it's what's within that counts! As for myself, I'm attractive, but not a magazine model,( heck, I'm nearing 60!) and I'm aging, so if you're into "ms. Beautiul" or "playboy models", or any models for that matter, don't bother. I feel that there are attributes and personality traits that people possess that are enduring,beautiful, and never wrinkle...Personality, integrity, honesty,ethics, humor, and sincerity are tops in my book, and most important. I pride myself on my principles and how I live my life.I welcome anyone who might feel the same.

Religions Christian - Other  
Eating Habits I try to eat healthy from food pyramid, Trying to eat healthy!  
Wild Fact About Me I'm not "wild" at, that is. Write and ask!
My Philosophy love one another , do no harm, watch your words carefully, choose to think positive even though negativity abounds, educate yourself as much as possible, listen to experience, learn from history, believe in a higher power of some sort, don't belittle or badger others if your opinions differ, live a peace-filled life, obey societal laws unless they become big-brotherish, read all that you can in life, learn all you can, and help those who cannot help themselves. Have common courtesy in all matters.
What Gives Me Hope that our children ensure that the world becomes populated with fair, aware, and un-corrupt leaders who care about all peoples.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I'd do an ethics check on past and current policies to make sure everyone adheres to the Constitution and actually believes in human rights; and try not to allow history to repeat itself."government" agencies need overseers!; I'd see that religion was truly separate from all government policies.Nothing would be done in secret, and there would be actual penalties for anyone violating the integrity of any public office. Give government back to the people!I'd attempt to ensure bribery and nepotism were somehow stopped.But in reality, politicians , in general, need to let the majority of their constituents vote in a truly FAIR election, and I think the first rule I'd try to make would be to outlaw "smear tactics", and somehow get fairness incorporated into all policies so that not one group benefitted over another merely due to being influenced by money,emotions, etc. rather than a logical,empathic, keen understanding of all aspects of an issue and how some rule or law will affect everyone.Certainly, I'd try to see that educators actually delivered so that our children would grow up wise, healthy,desiring to learn more, and not lacking the very best education possible.
What/who changed my life and why no sole event,person, movie, or book changed my entire life. It's a collective , eclectic mixture of experiences, genetics, and societal influences that shape my personal ideology, ethics, integrity, etc.
What Bugs Me Anyone who causes harm with intent, erosion of human rights, any sort of unfair discrimination, poor "customer service", people who don't "listen", gossips, drivers under the influence, age-ism, sexism, ignorance, Any one that would hurt a child, noise poll

Inspirations visionaries, people who wish to make a difference, truly empathic people, people who live through adversity, great music, love, life itself, nature, peace, friends, understanding, the sun coming up, the sound of the ocean, peacemakers, healers  
What Scares Me loss of brain function, natural disasters we can't avoid, Ignorance and evil, Disrespect for others, Abuse, power-mongers, cruelty, narcissism, the number of drug abusers, any wars, loss of constitutional rights, being alone, Violent people, Religious Extremism, Losing

Quotation MLK's "I have a dream" speech,
the "golden rule", "Give me liberty or give me death"; anything that isn't cliche or trendy for the moment, and endures as a statement of truth, compassion, and committment for the benefit of all people.

    "We must protect the forests
    for our children, grandchildren and

    We must protect the forests for those
     who can't speak for themselves
    such as the birds, animals, fish and trees."

    Monday must be
    The most horrible of days
    But wait, please listen
    Do not worry my friend
    All Mondays must end
    Tuesday morning will be
    Faster will pass you will see
    Wednesday is the midle
    Some words I'ii write in a ridl
    Let us make this winter day
    A joyful and bright Thursday
    Friday is certainly the best
    You work with a smile
    And just for a little while
    Because tomorrow, Saturdat will be
    And after Sunday will come
    For you and me
    And we will go on living
    Another week has passed
    Another will begin

    Have a wonderful week dear friend
    With Love

    Our friendship is an ocean
    Far and wide
    Never ending
    Filled with memories
    That last a lifetime
    Our friendship is
    Just like the stars
    Both go beyond
    Man's reach
    So best friends it is
    Now and forever.
    That's the best feeling there is
    Nothing could be better
    Now and forever.


     With Love

    We're never completely in one place.
     Some part of us hangs out
    On streets we barely remember,
    Or converses with faces no longer familiar.
    Every encounter has a beginning,
    But never an ending.
    Like an exquisite ecosphere,
    The mind turns each raindrop into forever,
    Nor does it allow one word to disappear.
    Some evening, years from now,
    Our lives will be bitter or sweet.
    But we'll be together my Friend.

    ... I wish you my sweet Friend
    a peaceful weekend.
    With Love

    "Peace Is... "
    Peace is a beautiful thing
    Peace is laughter
    Peace is love
    Peace is stopping to enjoy.
    World peace
    Is looking at a tree
    Watching a spider
    build a web
    Touching the world
    with peace.
    Peace is nature
    Peace is a friend
    Peace is our flag
    Peace is you
    Peace is me
    Peace on Earth
    Peace toward all men and women
    and children
    Peace, Amen, Amen
    And in the heart of Askaban.
    The answer is unfogging
    War is not the answer 
    Is the answer.
    by Rose(age 8)New Hampshire

    have a peaceful weekend

    Save the Animals
    Endangered Species are fading away
    Need to stop hunting
    Do what I say
    Animals dying and
    Never being born
    Generations go by
    Extinct they become
    Rhinos being killed just for their horn
    Elephants getting hunted every day
    Destroyed habitats
    Sadly nothing is going their way
    Poachers spying all the time
    Every day animals get killed
    Could and should be put down for their crime
    Incredible animals running away
    Eventually they will become extinct
    Save the animals or go away
