I'm a survivor of Stage IV ovarian cancer - going strong!
I believe in live and let live, do no harm to others, agree to disagree, and EDUCATE one's self before you debate or argue!
What Gives Me Hope
Seeing young people in interesting relationships and seeing older people open their minds to new ideas.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Begin exploring bartering systems at all local businesses. Begin exploring the viability of opening new business/trade schools for which students can trade skills/goods/time for learning. Stop gov't subsidy to tobacco farmers - make incentive programs for them to turnover the land to produce crops to feed our hungry. TAX drugs, make them legal, regulate them as any other pharmacy product. Incentives for corporations and healthcare facilities to provide PE centers & childcare for employees.
What/who changed my life and why
My family, my friends, my coworkers, m patients: because I have known people in the most dire circumstances who have lived good lives in spite of terrible times. I'd so much rather hear stories of survival from them than from nasty former druggies/thugs, etc., who did terrible things and now want to show me how "good" they are. PUHLEEEEZE!
