Anne-Marie S....words of wisdom from my friend in Spain....

She is a wise woman (even though she's way younger than me)! We started writing at least 10 years ago on a website for people with ms. At that time she was married & living in London...fast forward about 5 years, she's living in Gibralter where her family is again, says she'll never give up her country & family for a man again....& married again, to a cute Spanish dr! And she's as big of a Metallica fan as me! She & her husband were in New York City for the release of one of their latest albums! What a neat life!

Sometimes, when I read/watch the news, it really does seem like humans ARE de-evolving...we're losing the 'old-fashioned' stuff our parents taught us.......to be polite, say please & thank you, just to act like human bi-peds, and not like a bunch of savages! Am I just an old fuddy-duddy?? Hmmmmm...something to think about...

Parents need to fill a child's bucket of self-esteem so high that the rest of the world can't poke enough holes to drain it dry..Alvin Price

Personally, I think you have to balance that with a little humility...

I read one time that the only real sin is selfishness. There may be something to that; most of the world's ills are traceable to self-centeredness. Little things like littering and driving like an asshole and big things like environmental destruction both stem from the same root.
