This is me. These are my thoughts and ideas and this is my life. I would like to write a book that someone besides myself would want to read. I dream of a better tomorrow, not just for myself but for our country and our world. I love animals and nature and people sometimes scare me even though I will throw myself between a dog I don't know and my own dog. If you follow me hopefully I will make it a habit to write and you will learn more as we go, and hopefully I will too.

PAD Day 19 - Authority
Yes, Miss Manners
I have no authority over my own self
I get angry, so angry I want to lash out,
to scream and hit and punch and kick
But, knowing that it is frowned upon, stops me
I smile, or at least keep my mouth shut.
It wouldn’t be right to make a scene, and
what does it help anyway?
Always be gracious and you will be treated kindly in return.
If not, just remember that those who treat others badly are
those that need your grace the most.
Yes, Miss Manners, although she was around before my generation, has
taught me well.
