  • 15. Friday, December 10, 2010 13How did I resolve this challenge? Justify being here?We are all passionate about something.

So I mustmake it clear that the views expressed here are mine, and are ALWAYS changing based on lifeexperiences. I thoroughly enjoy discussing these things, so I welcome conversation on my views at anytime!
