I love you too.  I am not a brainwashed Christian.  That is where I am coming from.  I have never accepted the concepts of ghosts, after life, or gods as viable realities.  That is why.

I love you and no matter if you hate me I would love to disscuss your issues and would love to understand where you are coming from.  I respect what you "believe" but would like to just simply understand why.

“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
        2 Chronicles 7:14

To laugh often and love much
To win respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends
To appreciate beauty
To find the best in others
To leave the world a bit better
whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition
To know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
