I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend. (J.R.R.Tolkien, The Two Towers)

When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

For CG...I Was Confused

I was confusing Deloise Stanley with Lois Winebarger. Her brother Allen Wayne was killed in a hunting accident when he was in the 4th grade. Lois was always very quiet and shy, never causing any problems and always had that little shy smile on her face.

I always thought she was the prettiest thing with that classically Appalachian, almost slavic, face. And you are right, she hardly ever said anything at all. I wonder what became of her.
