Keep it real,keep it honest,keep it trust worthy,keep it with kindness,keep it gentle,keep the smiles,and laughter,keep it serious when it needs to be,but always be you and I'll be me.
What Gives Me Hope
A friendly smile,a loving hug from Family,and friends but most of all the great spirit.Reading about other people who do not give up and want to stop abuse on animals and people.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Change the laws so the criminals will finally be afraid to go back to Jail.Make it tougher,get rid of those play time activity's..make the sentence life without parole.Bring back the death row,and stop letting it drag on for years.Change the law making it a felony when someone kills or hurts an animal.Make it tough enough to make it stop.
What/who changed my life and why
Grandfather and Standing Bear... and yes .. even Young Buck... he knows why.I send up prayers for "Grandfather" I love you.
