"I actually just recently got caught up in the news and heard about all this and just kind of giggled. I can't believe how long this went on. I don't have cable so I only get to watch the news once every other week at the most--that is on…"
"I don't know if I can accurately answer this question. I do subscribe to the ideal in many ways, but I was raised in a religious light and taught to be these things. I see and feel now that they are right for me and others.
