Pride and
are all what people strive for. Some people accomplish one or all of those traits, but what happens to those that don't?....

Are we forced to be less of a person and go on through life wondering around without anyone or anything to cry too. I wonder what does life mean to people? Things get harder as life goes on..we are always told if you fall off the horse you have to get back on it. I have fallen off of many metaphoiclly speaking horses and I have gotten back on them, but ... not the same as I once was. Maybe that is what people have to learn to change as the mistakes come. If you took a random survey and asked people what there definitions of each one of the four powerful words at the top of this page...I bet that people would be so distracted of you even suggesting a survey that they would not really and truely think deeply about what those four powerful words mean. Most people have problems talking about their feelings..I know several people mostly guys..sorry but the truth...have a major problem. Saying, "Oh, it't not always a fantasty", or "that is so weird" and so forth.

Elizabeth contines in her journal as she is thinking of more stuff this world lacks knowing she has so much on her mind then most people in this world do. Sometimes she thinks she is seriously from a different time and quite possible there is a chance. Elizabeth is a girl from a small town and she feels like the whole weight is on her shoulders. She has no one to talk to, but her dog. That isn't much insight to all of her questions, fantasies, and predictions. As Elizabeth grows up she finds it much harder to deal with things that goes on around her. She is now twenty-one and hasn't really had a normal childhood or teen life....her story continues maybe another time.

How was that? I just thought I might play around with some material. I was thinking about writing a book maybe or even chapter. I wouldn't mind some insight. Thanks!
