I am willing to fall Because I have learned how to rise.
I craft Love from heartbreak, Compassion from shame, Grace from disappointment, Courage from failure.
I am among the brave and brokenhearted, and I am rising strong.

My feelings about gun control
My feelings about gun control: All of it mixed up and confused, but very true. “The more things are forbidden, the more popular they become.” -Mark Twain “You cannot make men good by law: and without good men you cannot have a good society.” C.S. Lewis
“By the age of six the average child will have completed the basic
American education.... From television, the child will have learned how
to pick a lock, commit a fairly elaborate bank holdup, prevent wetness
all day long, get the laundry twice as white, and kill people with a
variety of sophisticated armaments.”
“Parents who are afraid to put their foot down usually have children who step on their toes.” -Chinese Proverb
“Why should society feel responsible only for the education of
children, and not for the education of all adults of every age?” - Erich
“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the
whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon
and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.” -Robert Fulghum
“Liberty, as well as honor, man ought to preserve at the hazard of his
life, for without it life is insupportable.” -Miguel de Cervantes
