    1. Never being in a state of hopelessness, to live without fear, and to drop one’s knowledgeability.

    2. Derived from my mother’s wisdom. Hopefully, some day, I can embody this lifestyle. My community, no.
    “It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have these three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence to practice neither.” -Mark Twain-

    3. Try to live life receptively and meditatively. Be able to learn, be available to learn, and to be vulnerable to existence.

    4. I haven’t figured it out yet. Life is best lived receptively and through self-reflection. It may take a lifetime, but slowly, I hope to come in tune with the Universe.

    I have just one – See to it that domestic terrorists like Ayers and Bernie are sent to prison or executed for their crimes. That would make my day!!!

    1. If you had the power to bestow on all human beings on earth three qualities (not religious affiliations nor physical attributes nor material goods) what would they be? Why?

    Three Qualities I would bestow: Love of Liberty, Respect for the civil law and compassion for your fellow man, a sense of duty and personal responsibility. (Okay, that’s four)

    2. Are these qualities embodied in your life? Your home? Your work place? Your community?

    Yes.

    3. What are five things you could do right now to bring those qualities more fully to life in each of these settings?

    1. Support for principled conservatives policies and candidates
    2. Donate to money to my Christian church
    3. Raise my children with firm respect for the highest American ideals
    4. Defend my country from attack from without and within
    5. Defeat liberalism and left wing ideology wherever I find it.

    4. What prevents you from doing those things?

    A pervasive and determined left-wing philosophy, as practiced by Bill Ayers, that threatens our freedom, undermines our institutions, erodes our confidence in the American revolution and denies the younger generation a proper understanding of what America really means, and why America is so critical to the future of the human race.

    Thanks for giving me a voice Bill. I like being listened to…..

    1. If you had the power to bestow on all human beings on earth three qualities (not religious affiliations nor physical attributes nor material goods) what would they be? Why?

    Empathy, Compassion and Common Sense. I think, if everyone displayed these three qualities universally (I mean empathy and compassion for everyone), we could solve most of our problems.

    2. Are these qualities embodied in your life? Your home? Your work place? Your community?

    I try. The one I probably least embody is common sense. Actually, sometimes I stubbornly try not to be empathetic, because it’s easier to dislike someone (mostly with teachers -that’s mostly a joke). I’m a student at San Francisco State, so I think these qualities are emphasized more in my community than in many others.

    3. What are five things you could do right now to bring those qualities more fully to life in each of these settings?

    1. Display these qualities yourself.
    2. Educate people, about anything and everything.
    3. Think critically, about anything and everything.
    4. Smile more.
    …That’s all I have, so far.

    4. What prevents you from doing those things?

    I am trying to do these things, but it is hard, as I mentioned, to be empathetic to some people (I’d name names, but I’m trying hard to not be political). Our country has such a divisive atmosphere, I don’t think enough people see empathy and compassion as valuable qualities. But, in my day to day life and, hopefully, my future career, I do and will strive to embody and promote these attributes.

    Thanks for putting these questions out there; they really got me thinking.
