I have been a Navy man for about 16 years, been many places and met many great people. I have been happily married for 14 years, have a biological daughter with an adopted son. I consider myself socially conservative and environmentally progressive. I started in a lower middle class home and, through living and a relationship with Christ, realized a wonderful life. Lately I have made a habit of alternating between family and current events. We understand that some feel that believing in something bigger than yourself, adopting standards, and having a set moral code can make one “intolerant” and “rigid.” Fortunately, that is the way the world works.
