The way I see it (which I finally realize is somewhat crazy. Or maybe just outside the norm.) But, the way I see it, we’re here for a short time only. We can choose to spend that time taking everything we can get and maybe dying happy. Or, or! We can choose to do whatever we can to make things better for our kids, their kids, and everyone’s kids. You know how people want to find meaning with their lives?? I already know my meaning in life is to make it better for others. I pay attention so you don’t always have to. I’ve died a couple times already so you don’t have to. I’m insecure so you don’t have to be. Everyone is fighting the same battle. Everyone. All over the world. We are all far more alike than we are different. My job in the world, this small North Dakota hick town chick, is to make you see it. So, and it seems funny having to say this, but, so…..regardless of religion, skin color, sexual orientation, race, beliefs….it doesn’t matter. The world relies upon the different to make it great. We only have a few years here. Why spend it fighting?
