I was sexually assaulted when I was twelve years of age. Picked upon mercilessly in school until I quit. Drugs and alcohol followed. Self destruction on an epic scale.
Nobody in my family could or would show me that I had worth of any kind. I come from a family of victims.
You see, I have been bullied and worse. Far worse than being called a bad example by someone whose opinion shouldn't amount to a hill of beans.
Perspective is what I have, I guess.
I would love to point at my resume of hurts and see that the worse that had happened was someone saying that I didn't meet their ideal.
I walk through this life with my head held high. My life isn't perfect, but I do it.
Sometimes you just have to say that guy is trying to f*ck with me. Well,He better pack a lunch, he has a lot of work ahead of him.
When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic. Sell not liberty to purchase power. - Benjamin Franklin
