Why tattoos?
Im an african american & Creole female and I have 2 tattoos *working on my 3rd*. as a "black" person people often reference tats to slavery and all that, saying its a form of branding. But me being the person I am, I see branding as a positive thing (branding who you are). I am friends with people who have 1-50 tats. some for emotional/mental reasons, such as kevin young, and some for the love of art. Although many cultures have their meaning for tatting someone, my meaning comes from the Native Americans. They would tat themselves to symbolize their name, tribe, location, kids, family, marriage, death, birth, etc. I have a tat that represents my Jr Fraternity in High School (which helped change my life as a growing young woman) and I have a tat that represents who I am as a person, it's the word Defiant. My next tat will be a spider web on my back. The spider web is a symbol of how a person "weaves" their own life and destiny by the choices you make, but it only lasts through faith.

Why can't we all get together and find a cure to all terminal diseases?
Its all a "money circle". People get sick, doctors identify the illness, find a cure, but it costs too much *most people who are sick are middle class or poor*, they market the cure, but only the rich and insured can afford it, and repeat. Im sure many centers collab and research together, the true question is "when will we be able to provide the cure?"

Why is it so hard for one to open up about an abusive past?
I somewhat learned about this in my psychology class a few years ago, as well as my personal experiences. Psychologically a person is capable of "forgetting" about a horrific experience (abusive past). When someone goes through something they can mentally delete it out of their minds, allowing them to move on. The down fall to this method is that you never grow from the experience and you haven't accepted the fact it happened. The second method is people "acting out". I saw an episode of criminal minds where the man was physically abused by his coach. 25 years later he found out his son was abused by his swim coach; He then began to murder people he felt was a threat to children, doing society justice. Me personally, I take bad experiences and flip them into a positive trait for growth and maturity. Nobody ever wants to revisit their past!
