Thank you all for your comments on this post. I agree, it is difficult to comment on a serious post or one you don't necessarily feel strongly about.
Also, my dad told me that I misquoted him so I definitely need to clarify. He says I am a zealot, not a fanatic. :)
I have not been posting very regularly for a few months now. I have several thoughts and posts stirring in this brain of mine. Now I just have to find the time and the ability to stay awake in order to share them with you guys! Hopefully that will be soon!
