I wrote and published, in the St. Joseph MI newspaper, most of the following short statements.
I wrote knowing that each person and each situation is different, while also similarities exist.
Consider for yourself which actually describe the person and the situation you are studying.  "One size will not fit all".  "If the shoe does not fit, do not wear it."  But if you do not believe the truth, delusion will diminish your own value to yourself and others.
May you discover truth and may God add His blessing to you. PB 2014

don’t feel obligated by conscience either. PB 24 Apr 86
