I do, but not in a "wear red white and blue" kinda way.

I am proud of this country, its culture, and what it stands for. I am proud of its history, its heritage and its resources. I am proud of the words that the founding father's put to paper, what it meant, and what it means today. i am proud to call myself an American, the great great grandchild of immigrants, first in my family to get an advanced degree.

I am not proud of the actions sometimes carried out in the name of this country. I am not proud of entity that our legislature has de-volved into. I am not proud of ethnocentrism and egotism that runs rampant in this country and this culture masked as patriotism.

I have read the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, The Gettysburg Address and the Federalist Papers. I know the meaning and the implications the words on those papers carry. I am a registered voter and I take that civic duty very seriously. I do my homework, I listen to the debates and I educate myself on the issues. I THINK before I pull the lever, I don't vote with my party, I vote with the information I learn when I look into the candidates.

So the short answer is yes...the long answer is...are you, really?

I think that it is the educational system's job to teach our children about health, biology, and science. Sex falls very much into those categories.

I also think it is the PARENT'S responsibility to teach their children about the other aspects of sex, the responsibilities that go with being sexually active, the emotional side of sex, and how sex falls into their chosen faith.

Sex is not a topic that can be explained by pure science, pure emotion, or pure spiritual terms. If we do not arm our children with ALL of these facts about their bodies and what they can AND WILL do with them, we are doing them a disservice and shirking our responsibilities.

my best trait- tenacity towards my goals

my worst trait- I can be egotistical

I think my friends would agree, or not, kinda depends on how well they know me

It would have to be a classic cherry red convertible, with [ profile] madamruppy , [ profile] velvet_c , [ profile] divalion and my best friend Bond.

And we would go on an adventure of a lifetime, no set schedule, just us driving across Rt 66 and stopping at  road side attractions and oddities as long as we could. Of course, NOT ending in suicide by driving over a cliff like thelma and louise...cause that would be tragic...

Yes but not because it would violate some rule or law, but because they were bad for me. Toxic relationships seem to be a theme with me as I've done it several times...Yes, and no I try to live with no regrets...people are in our lives for a reason...and i'm trying to learn from this and not hand my heart out to people who aren't healthy for me....
