my dear care2 friends,

i know that i have unanswered messages waiting in my inbox from most of you, and at the present rate, they come faster than i can go through them in the time i have available.  please don't get me wrong, i love you all and appreciate each and every message!  ^_^  but unfortunately i will be without internet for an unknown period of time, so it will be a while before i can get back to any of them.  it's all summed up pretty good on this video

if anyone has urgent need of me, please email as i will be checking this account periodically.

and if anyone gets to missing me too much  ^_^

feel free to browse through my pictures
or my sharebook
as i have added to both recently  ^_^
and my news as well
as i have rather come to enjoy posting and reading news on care2 and would love to know that my contributions are welcome.  (especially this one )

i know i may be away for awhile and i'll miss a bit of you a whole bunch and a bunch of you a bit -- hopefully you know who you are  ^_^

much love and happy trails, Anne M.

ps. i wasn't joking  ^_^

MWAH!   ^_^

Dear Friends old and new,
i know i've been away awhile and i've missed a bit of you a whole bunch and a bunch of you a bit - and hopefully you know who you are ^_^
and as for everyone else, i can't wait to get to know you ^_^
and wow, i am flattered! i can't believe how many people wanted to be my friend after all this ^_^
i do love you dearly, but fear it will be some time before i can get through all of the emails (400 in my care2 account alone) so if you are waiting on a response please bare with me ^_^ i suppose i'll handle it like a whale - start at the tail and take small bites. i am greatfull for every single email and will respond to them all!
i just can't thank y'all enough for your kindness and am awaiting the day when i am able to pay it forward ^_^
and for the few who have seen this as an opportunity to show me more ugliness and mean spirited behavior - i will continue to ignore and delete your emails (i won't even read them anymore so you are wasting your time) and you are not preventing me from using this or any other network i choose to be a part of! there are more NICE people in the world and i have proof now ^_^
that being said, the rat race seems to have the better of me at the moment and my time on here will be sparse for a while, but once my financial situation is straitened out i will be all over the place like before ^_^
what can i cay when words are not enough? ^_^ the biggest thanx possible for sharing the kindness we needed to get through this tough time! we will manage to keep our heads above water and more importantly (thanx to your beautiful words and pictures) we are as happy as ever - thankx to y'all, the mean people of the world will never get us down again! ^_^
happy HAPPY trails, Anne M.
ps. please watch my thank you video to everyone  i hope you like it  ^_^

Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death

March 23, 1775
By Patrick Henry

No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the house. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the house is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at the truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the numbers of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received?

Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlement assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation.

There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free--if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us! They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength but irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extentuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace--but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Wild Fact About Me not really wild, but fun facts:
i once dressed in halloween costumes 366 days in a row (from halloween to halloween of corse) i also spent an entire year barefoot.
My Philosophy When life gives you lemons (yes, one of these) ... make grape juice ^_^ then sit back and laugh as everybody tries to figure out how you made grape juice out of lemons!
What Gives Me Hope YOU!!! ^_^ yes you, the one reading this right now!

"Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others. . .they send forth a ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
- Robert F. Kennedy

thank you! ^_^
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by holding a political office would not give me the power to change the things i would really want to... but politically speaking, upholding the constitution would be a good start ^_^ getting the children's bill of rights legally enforceable would be great too.
What/who changed my life and why everything that has touched it,
because that's the nature of things ^_^
Quotation not really my favorites (too many to list anywhere) but these will do:

"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to the one who is striking at the root."
~ Henry Thoreau ~

"It is better for someone to burn the flag and wrap themselves up in the Constitution than to burn the Constitution and wrap themselves up in the flag."
~ Molly Ivins ~

"To hell with power, freedom is the greatest aphrodisiac!"
~ AnnE M. ~

^_^ (i enjoy quotes, so this will be full soon) ^_^
