I believe in peace, justice, and equality. I believe , despite the ridicule of my friends, that someday nations will recognize what a waste war is.
I believe that Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi, Buddha, Chief Joseph, and all the peacemakers were sent by the Creator to teach us about life.
I believe my mind is my own church. I believe I should live a moral life for what it means today and not some promise of reward in the afterlife. I believe you have one life to make a difference.
I believe in solitude. I believe in prayer. I believe the bible is hearsay. I believe the Creator would be appalled by the “Religious Right” and what some do in his / her name.
I believe…therefore I am.
