About Me I am a wife of nearly six years and a mother to a two and a half year old named Malcolm. When I first joined five years ago, I called myself a conservative christian. A LOT has changed. When I got pregnant three years ago, I did a lot of thinking about the type of person I wanted my child to be. I realized very quickly that I didn't see very much in myself and my beliefs that was worth passing on to my child. I had strong beliefs about a lot of things that didn't change, but I realized that I was cold and intolerant about other things. So I did a lot of inner searching and started trying to figure out who I was and what I believed. Most of my beliefs I inherited from my parents and I decided to throw the old traditional ways of thinking out the window and start over. Which took more time then I expected with a newborn to tend to. The result, I am liberal, atheist, strongly environmental, and devoted to creating a world where Malcolm can live in peace and security as whoever he chooses to be and where he can look back and know that his mother worked for equality for everyone and for the protection of our world. I used to do this for me, now I am returning to do things differently for him.
