About Me:Lived all over; in the city, the suburbs, the country. Northeast, Southwest, all around. Lots to know about people. Educated in computers and mathematics; self-taught in leadership, public speaking, religion and writing. Capable of rambling on almost anything (poorly, but that doesn't stop me.)
Activities:Outdoors, family, interacting & connecting. Musician, but not very talented.
Beliefs:Good is a real, non-opinion thing. Humanity is good, and even if we disagree on how best to connect and go from there, there should be common ground on that. Seeking common ground and increasing understanding, are good. Results matter, and because of that, values matter. And because of that, (if for no other reason), faith matters.

Quotes:Darkness cannot cast out darkness; you need a light for that. Hate cannot cast out hate. You need love for that. - MLK, Jr.

To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it. - GKC

Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained. - C.S. Lewis

Dialogue is the air that clear thinking breathes - Me.

Otherwise you are a complete hypocrite. Dogs might be a pet in your country, but in other places your mutt is a cherished meal. Get over it. Random people try to stop dog m...
