My views on the meaning of life have certainly changed over the years. I used to think procreation was at the root of it, but I don't believe that
anymore. A person with no children can leave more of a legacy than one who does have children, it simply depends on what they do in and with their
lives. Most people with kids live life working to pay their kids way, then they die. Their kids will miss them, remember them, continue to love them,
but will most likely do the exact same thing, work their life away and die. I remeber my father well, he was the epitomy of military life, he loved
his country, and served it for 33 years in the air force. He retired 100 percent disabled, and lived the few short years of the rest of his life
tryint to spend time with his family. He died young, 52, I remember standing their looking at him and thinking what was it all for? Why try so hard at
life when this is the end result for all of us? I decided then to try to be good to others, to live my life the way I want to, have fun when I want, I
don't worry about what other people say or think, when I die I will have those around me saying 'well, she lived a happy life and was good to
others' because there isn't anything called a happy death. I want my friends and family to remember that I loved to have fun. I love to sing, I love
to be on stage, and I love my fans. That makes me happy, having a few good drinks makes me happy. Making others happy, makes me happy.
I do hope there is a heaven, and I hope I get in, but I will not waste another moment sitting in a building allowing theives to tell me to give them
my money or go to hell. I give money directly to those in need, if I have it, not to a church or organization. Church is a hoax anymore. IMO goodness
is inside us, and if you believe in God then you know if you are his or not, no church can make that decision for you.
