Why? . . . an answer

The question I get asked most . . . Why? or as YJ said, "are you an idiot?" . . . and yes, it was in jest . . . but the real reason, I'm not going to say. It's personal. I will say this. I have a friend. Let's call her . . . aUSA (real person but fake initials--remember to keep it all anonymous--don't use my name ) . . . She gave me a card one day with this quote, "be the change you wish to see in the world." I don't know much (and yes, you can quote me on that), but I do know that I don't understand why . . . why we are here, why we have pain and suffering, why we laugh and cry at the same time, why I can't roll my r's when I say 'ruffles have ridges' . . . but I do know we could have more if everyone just tried to be the changes needed in this world. So, I want to be part of the change. You may not agree with my method, but that's your right, and as such, be the change you wish to see in this world.


  1. Now that wasn't so hard was it...just answering the question? I already feel better. But you may not being on day 1. Or is it Day 3? YJ

  2. 10 years ago I would have gone with you. A part of me still wishes I would. I have always considered you one of my oldest and closest friends, but I have more respect for you now than ever. You have a courage and strength that escapes me and just the fact that you are wiling to step out and try to make a change in your own way impresses me in a way that few have. I am jealous and in awe, but mostly I am just proud to know you...MEW


Please refrain from using my name or anything that will ID me. Also, if you choose to sign your posts, only use your initials. It may seem silly, but please understand there is a reason.
