Discovering Your Difference

White mushroom clouds decorate a deep blue sky and a strong gusty wind whips and tangles Ammie’s long dark hair. The summer trees bend so deeply they seem to bow to the warm earth in all true sincerity while a few leaves blow care­lessly away. The green blades of grass move about continually almost like […]

My graceful ride moves on as I float high and far above a lonesome world. I feel happy, free, content, and…found! Different from many of you. And so the world turns and twists in confusion about the ugly word d-r-u-g-s. The problem presents complications which are like a huge web, each day slowly being spun, […]
