I grew up Catholic. I even went to Catholic school and everything.

Many of us carry enormous scars from our childhood.

I rarely watch the news or read the paper. I haven’t done so for years. But when I do, I’m always struck by how much fighting is going on.

13 Question Everything

I’ve never lived my life by what other people would consider conventional rules. From a very early age, what others considered as “normal” often just didn’t make any sense to me.
