What Gives Me Hope
i useta have a t-shirt that read "When I can't cope, Jesus offers hope!" :)
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
trying to abolish most of the laws having to do with "victimless crimes," i.e. one's personal choice to use whatever drugs one chooses (so long as no one else is harmed), any 2 adults choosing to engage in consensual sex; also, i would use the Constitution and Bill of Rights to guide the actions of myself and all government employees serving below me.
What/who changed my life and why
Jesus Christ changed my life, for obvious reasons that i shall not go into here. To a small extent, "The Passion of the Christ" also changed my life by renewing my faith in the aforementioned individual.
