You know, my family and friends have never been yes-men: ‘Yes, you ‘re going the right thing, you ‘re always right.’ No, they tell me when I’m wrong, and that’s why I’ve been able to stay who I am and stay humble.
Whatever you define family as, family is just a part of belonging to something that takes care of you and nurtures you.. and when you have lost that, and yo want to get that back, it’s pretty easy to get emotional about it.
(Ellen De Generes said)
I’m very much in the trenches, and I don’t live in the lap of luxury. I come from a working-class military family. We watch the news and read the paper and vote, so there’s always something to be upset about. I always have a certain amount of angst in my back pocket.
(Francis of Assisi said)
I had this child, and it destroyed my family.
