No drug,not even alcohol,causes the fundamental ills of society.If we're looking for the sources of our troubles,we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity,ignorance,greed, and love of power... P.J. O'Rourke

IMPRESSIONS OF A PILOT
Flight is freedom in its purest form, To dance with the clouds which follow a storm;
To roll and glide, to wheel and spin, To feel the joy that swells within;
To leave the earth with its troubles and fly, And know the warmth of a clear spring sky;
Then back to earth at the end of a day, Released from the tensions which melted away.
Should my end come while I am in flight, Whether brightest day or darkest night;
Spare me your pity and shrug off the pain, Secure in the knowledge that I'd do it again;
For each of us is created to die, And within me I know, I was born to fly.

Deep peace of the running waves to you..
Deep peace of the flowing air to you...
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you..
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the shades of night to you.
Moon and stars always giving light to you.....
