More Than This:
I Ask, I Wonder, I Question
I'm just about ready to call it a day.
I have always been a solitary person and every time I venture into the world I find the same thing -- disappointment.
Every time I face the world I am met with negativity.
I do have to say, though, that in perusing your site and discovering the historical writings of Voltaire, Paine, Mencken, and others has given me hope.
I am more than what my neighbor would have me be.
I am more than what the church would tell me I am.
I really appreciate your site.
That life has not been kind to you is what I assume, that you find joy in living is what you project and in your positive a-theism I find a freedom that my fellow humans of belief and ignorance of thought have not been able to impart.
You were adopted. I was not. I was wanted but in birth was sorely rejected because I was not what was expected.
I was loved by a father who was invalidated in his weakness to the insanity of a mother who was incapable of compassion.
Neither were responsible for being other than what they were raised to be. Why? Because neither ever asked. Never questioned, As far as I know, ever wondered.
I ask, I wonder, I question.
