M had a rough childhood, dysfunctional family, parents who should not have been parents, bounced around in the foster care system, trouble with authority, etc..  Your “typical” case of someone in that type of situation.

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ One aspect of the Internet is that it allows like minded people to connect on a global scale.  One community that has grown in collaboration considerably is the Atheist community.

My friend and his wife went to the Caribbean during the […]

Content with the Present

January 8th, 2008 · No Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ Sitting around gaging how things have been going the last three years, I began to contemplate if I was content with the present, my present. I then recalled something that my wife shared (something someone said to her): People who look for drastic changes in their lives are not happy with […]

Kids say the dardest things

December 20th, 2007 · No Comments

Provocation and Response

September 4th, 2007 · 3 Comments

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ The only reason I have a blog is to act as a repository for my own thoughts. I would write them down, but then I have to retrieve them and translate my chicken scratch to English (which isn’t always easy). That and then I would have to take care of paper, […]
