    Jul 9 2013: My moral code is to leave the world a better place than how I found it. If I can leave a smile, that's good. If I can make someone safer, or happier, or with some facts or thoughts, those are all good. I don't try to impose this on anyone else. My moral code is designed to guide me in a world that's often insane, cruel, and heartless. I don't worry about 'changing the world' (though the situations often fill me with horror, shame, anger, and grief). I try to focus on my own performance. Some days I'm able to do a lot of good. Other days not.

    I don't share a good bit of the 'moral code' of folks living around me. Not my problem. I simply try not to offend and if I think some things I find moral are not shared by others, I simply keep to myself.
