I'd like to take this opportunity to encourage you to read as much as you can and to gain as much experience and knowledge as possible so that you may be able to form educated and reasoned opinions. rumors and misinformation are rampant, and it's very important for all of us to do our own research to sift through all of the words and use facts to build a foundation for independent thought. this is the information age. there is no excuse for being uninformed.
READ. LEARN. THINK.
