I have many missions it seems in this lifetime. Care for the elderly, humane treatment of animals, and support for our troops in the deserts of the Middle East. My son died in Iraq on July 21, 2005, serving as a field medic with his marine battallion.
He was a humanitarian, a cat-lover, and a loving father.
I supported his belief in the efforts for recovery in in Iraq, but feel now, more than ever, that the American troops should come home.
I am sick and tired of the way the elderly in our country count pennies to survive, and often die alone and unattended in nursing homes, or at home. Children no longer have role-models to look up to. What role models they do have are too controversial.
I am tired of the government and energy companies denying that there is no "green house effect". If you look at this past summers weather events in Louisianna, and world wide, there should be no doubt that the green house effect is changing our earth and costing lives, homes, and suffering.
I am a lot more intelligent than most people think, and an avid supporter of women's rights.
If it looks like a duck, walks, like a duck, then, guess what...it is a duck.
What Gives Me Hope
my faith, my feeling that this life is the beginning of many lives, as we seek to learn about all aspects of the human condition.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
If I were President, I would bring the troops home now. I would do my best to create a health care plan that would benefit every member of society. I would pour more resources into federal funding of educational programs, so that the average student will have an attainable goal upon completion of high school.
What/who changed my life and why
The death of my son. There is no turning back from this event. It is a fact, and it has shown me that faith is all we have to get us through each day.
