“It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.”  ~Benjamin Franklin, quoted in the Montreal Gazette

This blog is the place I will write, when events inspire me. Though I am expressing my own opinion, I am not expressing it necessarily to persuade you to think my way, but to make you think about a subject period. There is a lot going on in the world around us today, and we must always be thinking about how events will affect us or those we love, or even those we have never met. Frequently, we need to question society and the way actions, attitudes, relationships and interdependencies will affect us now and in the future.

To give you an idea of who I am and how I think, my favorite book is The Children’s Story, written by James Clavell.  I happened to see it at the library and its physical stature was so different from his other books it caught my eye. Once I got home, as I walking into my bedroom, I opened the book and started reading the first page. I found it so riveting, that I sat right there on the floor of my bedroom and read the entire book. (It’s a small book!) If you have never read this book, you owe it to yourself to check it out. It will make you think about and examine many things – most aptly critical thinking skills and our freedom of speech, expression, and thought. Later I read that Clavell said this book came together quite quickly – requiring no rewrite and changing only three words.

I hope you enjoy my postings and random thoughts, and I hope they inspire you to think about the world around you — locally, nationally, and globally; and to question the status quo. I look forward to your feedback 🙂
