Favorite Quote:
"What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments but what is woven into the lives of others." -Pericles


Everything will give you cancer.
Nothing will cure the disease.

No diet will make you thin.
All of America has become too obese.

I don't want to hear it on the news.
No, I don't care what the experts say.

This is the life we have chosen to live.
We shouldn't have it any other way.

Oil spewing from the gulf,
Film covering the sea.

Citizens in terror,
Politicians filled with glee.

A war around the world,
fallen troops to show.

Instead of bringing them home,
We're letting the army grow.

We let go of love,
Just to let animosity spread.

Let go of simple things,
Only to allow money ahead.

I don't want to hear it on the news.
No, I don't care what the experts say.

This is the life we have chosen to live.
We shouldn't have it any other way.
