What's your take on. . . :
(may skip 4)(at least three sentences per response)
Straightedge vs. drug-usage/alcoholism:I don't like drugs, I don't like drinking, within limits though. So I'm on the straightedge side. I don't see a good side to drugs, unless they're prescribed to you. People have argued with me about how they're not all bad, but yes they are. The drugs are bad. It just depends on the person using them to see how bad they really are. Drinking, I don't like. I've seen some people do some horrible things while drunk, and was almost hit by a drunk driver, we got out of the way with less than a second till he hit us. That was scary. But. I don't see a problem with limited drinking. Like my Dad does. He's over the legal drinking age, and he drinks maybe one at a time. Not even everyday, just once in a while. Controlled drinking, and prescribed drugs, where you're given a dosage to follow, I'm okay with. Illegal drugs, and excessive drinking, I'm against.
Capital Punishment:There are a lot of people out there, including my mom, that are "If you kill someone, you should die." She believes in the 'Eye for an eye' saying. I don't. Yes I think murder is wrong, but I don't think you should be killed for it. You're just as bad as the murder you're killing. Just because they killed someone, doesn't give us the right to kill them. What's that teaching anyone? There are better punishments. Life in prison maybe? Anythings better than killing another person.
Prostitution/pornography:It's your body. Your self image. I think you have the right to do whatever you want with that. If you want the joy of knowing men around the world want you, then go ahead. You have the choice. You should just make sure that you're careful and that you watch out for yourself. And be sure you can handle what you're getting yourself into.
Religion:I don't have one. You could say I follow science. I do believe that we evolved. And I believe that religion came about when someone needed something to keep them going. A little faith. Therefore, a God(s) were created. That's how the different religions came about. Each group of people had their own thing to believe in, and their lifestyle reflects in how their God(s) appear.
Abortion:I'm pro-choice. I believe the mother has the choice. I believe in protection to. Both sides should be using protection to prevent the pregnancy in the first place. And not just rely on abortion when the girl does get pregnant. Abortion should be used to prevent a child from having a crappy life. Not everyone can give their kid basic needs, a house, food, clothes. And adoption doesn't always work. Not every child gets adopted. And if the child is, not every house they're adopted into, is the best home.
One other thing you want to dicuss:Discrimination. I'm currently writing a report about it for my history class. And things aren't much better then they were way back when. What made me write about this was a boy in my class. He's horrible. He just doesn't care about anyone but himself. When gay marriage comes up in the news, he's the one who yells out "Ew." The teacher argues with him about why he thinks this, and his answer is always. "Why do I want to guys to be married? So I can see them kissing? Now, if it's two hot girls I'm all for it." Of course he is. But chances are, if they are girls, they're won't be hot enough for his standards. Besides, who said the guys had to be married to kiss in public in the first place. Last time I checked most high school teens that make out in the hallways have barely been dating long, yet alone are married. Anyway, back to discrimination. It's not just this boy I've seen it in. I've see plenty of my friends apply for jobs, and been told no because they're sixteen or seventeen. They claim that they hire at that age, but they didn't even give them an interview. I've seen kids at school picked on because he was "retarded" as they called him. He was sweeping the mess they made, and all they did was pick on him. They have a special class room, because the school won't put them mixed with us, because they are singled out. They're never included in anything, and are always the ones to be picked on. One of my friends, Shaquille, and I volunteered at our local government center for an election night. We had to work with some explorers as runners. None of them had done this before. I had. So they're supervisor told them I was in charge, and to listen to me. I started explaining, and as soon as he left they stopped listening. They wanted to everything their way. They refused to let Shaquille and I help, saying things like, "We don't want to stress you ladies out." "You girls should just leave, you're not going to do much, I'm don't even know why you came in the first place." They ended up screwing everything up. They wanted to keep things in order and completely failed. When it came time to load these green bags on to the truck they formed a line and went one at a time. It was going to take forever. So I suggested each person grabbing at least four, because I could carry four, and being the weak girl I am, they should have easily been able to do that. They argued that they wanted it in order. If each person grabs them in order, and they don't cut in front of one another, the bags will stay in order. They didn't want to do it that way. So they told us to go away. They kept their line, but started moving two - three bags at a time instead of one. Needless to say, I hate being told no because I'm female. We can actually do everything they did, had they given us a chance. And, with Shaquille, she's half black & half white. Her Mom is white, Dad is black. I've over heard some of her "friends" talking behind her back about it. Saying things about how she tries to be in both "groups." Because she does have both white and black friends, and apparently, they don't see that as a good thing.She has qualities of both. Therefore, she can easily become friends with either.

Tell us one piece of advice that has impacted your life most:Don't hold grudges. I used to hold them a lot. I got it from my mom, because she always did it. She noticed me doing it and wanted me to stop, so, she stopped holding grudges agaisnt my dad. To see her do that, showed me that I could do it as well.
