Hello, Readers!

 I live in Forest Park, Illinois. I am a social worker in the mental health field, as well as a Lutheran in search of a new church.  I enjoy writing, cooking, dining, and collecting  foreign currency. I am currently a newlywed (7 months), and I consider myself to be an economic liberal and a social right-leaning moderate. I also consider myself to be a nationalist Social Democrat. There, I said it. Now, before you get all hot and bothered, I said Social Democrat, not Communist. Huge difference!

Most of the things I will rant and reflect on will be about these things. No matter how brusque I may sound, all I want is what is best for my town, my country, my church, and the people I love. All I want is a peaceful life, and I want no enemies, but I am not afraid to stand up for what I believe in when things go too far. I can be outspoken sometimes, but I do so with the best intentions. If I write something that crosses the line, feel free to rebuke me. I only ask that extend the same integrity that you would want from me. If you want to debate with me, I will pick up the gauntlet, but only if you fight fair, which means no name-calling or direct judgments against me.

All that being said, happy reading!
