Sympathy and understanding is hard to come by. Society, as a whole, doesn't tend to sympathize with people unless there are circumstances that really speak to that sympathetic nature - family illness, death, loss of home, car accidents, etc. There are circumstances to which people feel sympathetic. Incarcerated juveniles put into the system for their… Continue reading Why Zombies vs. Juvenile Delinquents?
Exhaustion and a Whiskey Diet
Well readers...it's been a tiring couple of weeks.
