I finally understand that it is up to me how I feel; I have some control over my emotions by choosing to surround myself with beauty and beautiful people.  No longer am I dominated by cowardly bullies, and so now I can use whatever time I have left in this existence to take advantage of the talents I have, and to enjoy some of the many interesting and wonderful parts of this world.  And that is what I am gonna do.

I am still very upset about all the children who have been murdered and raped.  I was not able to finish my blog post on Shaniya Davis, but it will be coming in the future.  It seems that grief and joy are a normal part of life.
