Experimenting With Point-Of-View

*I wrote this a few months ago just to experiment a little bit with a male perspective because the next book that I plan to write is from a guy’s point-of-view (though this would not be an excerpt from that story)!

New Blog, Old Post.

Hey everyone, I’ve decided to start a new blog to express my opinions on various topics (mostly social political issues) and I have chosen one my most popular posts from my old blog as my first post here. This was written in July of 2012, just before I started my senior year of high school. I hope that you all enjoy it and that you will decide to follow me as I continue posting! Also, if you disagree with me on any issue I write about, I would love to discuss it further with you because we learn and grow as we see other people’s perspectives and gain new insight. That being said, please refrain from being rude, partaking in any name-calling, etc. In other words, please communicate your opinion in a respectful manner. Thanks!

Trust me, if you have a heart you’ll most likely feel it.
