I believe

  • I believe that there is no shame in having family and friends to support you in your life.
  • I believe that if you choose to not lean on anyone unless you absolutely have to, that's OK too.
  • I believe that my life is my responsibility, not yours.
  • I believe that I have the right to reject taking responsibility for your life.
  • I believe that if I am being asked to take responsibility for something, then I get a voice in that thing.
  • I believe that I value all life, but I'm honest enough to admit that there is a hierarchy of lives that I value: my kids, my wife, my family, my friends, my countrymen, our allies, then the rest of y'all.  My own is in there somewhere too.
  • I believe that faith is a personal matter and that no church guarantees faith.
  • I believe that there is true evil and true good in this world.  I've seen both.
  • I believe that I am my brother's keeper, but if I have to keep him, I get to put a boot in his ass until he doesn't need a keeper.
  • I believe that blogging isn't as good a cure for insomnia as I had hoped.

I like your I Believe message, good points to live by. Sorry to hear about the last one though. Obviously your blog is too interesting to be a cure for Insomnia.
