This is not my personal vent against the world, or a peek into the dark private corners of my mind. It is merely the thoughts I choose to share, I want to share, about life in general. About why it is so valuable. Why we must grab it and ride it wild into the sunset. Why we must speak up. Why we must fight back. Why we must love. Why we must remember. Why we must follow God. And why our lives are important-to us-and also to everyone else. The people we meet (good and bad) help make us who we are, and we help to make them.

I know there is an audience that will find it, and I pray that the voice cascading from my keyboard will fall kindly on the ears (and eyes) of those who read it.
