How many will live and let love die? How many will be against the other? You cannot find peace until you are yourself peaceful. Stop fighting your own. We are only here a short time, why not use that time to love? Why are we taught to be against and fight instead of using love to understand? That is the way of the future? Is that our evolution? I might be short timed but I am a lover, not a fighter. Join today.

Hey, you with a badge, and a gun, who imposes the law, don't break it, we the people know exactly what that badge, and that gun means (I can do anything to you, any time any way I feel like it) please, please don't, paranoia is not a good adviser, seek help before is to late for us.
