Wild Fact About Me I've been a farmer, a hunter, an animal rights activist, an herbalist, welder, a librarian, a teacher, a survival instructor, an opera singer, a radical, and a patsy for the man...all by the age of 25.
My Philosophy I grew up in a remote area. I know more of animals’ dealings than of people’s. Coming at society from the outside, I see a lot of need for improvement. I find most truths to be self evident. I find most people know what’s right, deep down inside. I want to put up a call to dispense with short-sightedness, lashing out, and laziness. I want everyone to ask themselves if their motives are rooted in fear or selfishness. If they are, to consider a wider view. The world can and will be a better place. We just need to stop making excuses and start working—hard. I’ve got a lot to learn and I’m loving every minute of the learning.
What Gives Me Hope "Always bear in mind that your resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing." --Abraham Lincoln
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Implement a civil service to parallel military service (for those with ethical objections to military). Offer full ride scholarships to public universities to young people who are willing to serve on a 1 year of service : 1 year of school ratio. The saving of mankind lies in education. I would pour money into the education system with an emphasis on history, social studies, and science. We need to build a new, peaceful green, and efficient future while learning how to avoid repeating past failures. I would like to introduce and implement troubleshooting and problem solving as a stand alone class. Executive function and free thinking needs to be fostered and cultivated throughout childhood as well as adulthood.
What/who changed my life and why Riding in the 1999 AIDS Foundation Ride as a seventeen year old made me see the world in a new light. I grew up in a very conservative christian area and I was both supported and violently confronted for supporting the AIDS foundation.
