But after having a little incident with someone close to my age that I have known for a good portion of my life, I got to see how she acted and responded to her mistakes. In 2 hours of being around this person, she blamed everyone she knew at least twice for everything that happened in her life. I have also seen how the U.S. has grown p*ssified from those who we elect. Gentlemen of this forum, I can honestly say that I am scared for our country and the future. I have always tried to look to those older than me to learn from their life experience and gain what knowledge I can from them. I haven't been a member of this forum for very long, but I have learn quite a bit from reading the posts you all make. Thank you all for that. My son will be born in the next few weeks, and I am hoping that I can have a positive impact and show him how important it is to take responsibility for his actions. To teach him that the easy way isn't always best and to listen and learn from those who have been there before him. I know that I can't be alone and there must be at least one person out there that feels the same way I do. I do not claim to be the most righteous person, the hardest worker, or anything of that nature. But i will not run from my responsibilities! Are we really headed for Hell in a hand basket?
