Wild Fact About Me I don't know how "wild" this is, but the only thing I can think of is that even as a kid, I ate veggies that nobody else my age would touch; I still love spinach and broccoli.
My Philosophy I maintain optimism about the country as a whole, but can't help being pessimistic about my own situation. Also: my rights end where they begin to interfere with others' rights.
What Gives Me Hope Remembering that what we see on the news is only a fraction of what's actually going on. For every extremist Muslim, there's a normal, everyday Muslim who is horrified by the extremists' corruption of Islam. For every black or Hispanic criminal, there is another minding his own business, doing good and playing by the rules. Only the evildoers make the news.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by If I were President, I would immediately start work with Congress to produce a Federal law that would make animal and child abuse punishable by as close to life imprisonment as I could get. Then I would tackle health care, the economy and the war on terror.
What/who changed my life and why Movie: seeing Jesus Christ Superstar actually led me from that to reading religious-based books (including the Bible) to what I call a :religious awakening" (not to be confused with "being born again") when I was about 15. The book that has had the biggest influence on me is probably The Lord of the Rings trilogy, if that can count as one--I became a hardcore fantasy fan after that. The only "person" I can think of who changed my life is my husband, by marrying me and disabusing me of the idea that nobody would ever want to. He had a positive influence on my self-esteem at a time when it was very low, and he continues to do so.
