"Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely."

I have issues with my computer that are making it difficult to post pictures, which is one of the main reasons I haven't been blogging much lately.
However, there are many issues plaguing our country that I cannot refrain from writing about, if only to clarify where I stand. As most of you know, I have another blog: For The Love of Liberty. I recently wrote a post about my thoughts on the health care bill. I don't even know if anyone read the post except someone I hardly know. This particular individual wrote me a scathing message, ripping everything I said to shreds. It got the wheels turning in my head. I decided that it would be impossible to write an adequate response to her message in any timely matter. And since I am a mom and have limits on my time, I decided to respond to different parts of her message individually.
Like most of you, I want very much to do something to change the tide in our country. I decided that for now, one of the things I can (and must) do is work out the arguments in my mind. So, for the sake of formulating intelligent arguments and articulating my positions correctly, I will be writing more on my Liberty blog. If this is something of interest to you, please read and comment on my posts... I welcome any ideas on where I may be missing a point, or even another point of view that I have not considered. I don't often get together with people to talk politics (though I'd love to!), so this is a forum where I can generate conversations that will sharpen my mind - and hopefully serve to prepare anyone interested to effectively communicate their ideas on freedom.
Please let me know what you think! You can link to my other blog here.

In reference to the great BSC, I have wasted SO MUCH of my parents' money reading during family outings, sporting events, and other paid-for activities. It's become family legend that Katie and I spent nearly every summer holed up on our window seats, wrapped in blankets to ward off the air-conditioning and reading as though our lives depended on it. My stepdad finally banned books (and Walkmans) in the car on short trips because I would zone out if either were present, and in his mind, car time should be family-talking-to-each-other time. Needless to say, I became quite adept at sneaking books and tapes into the car in my coat pockets. NEVER attempt to thwart a bookworm!!!
