ATS has made a huge difference in my life.
Being from a long line of political leaders in my family I was tutored on how to act in public. It was awful.
Had to smile no matter what. Could not get really upset and show my true feelings even in the face of people I knew were our political enemies.
Thankfully on this site I can speak my mind finally. It is a welcome relief to me.
My son joined a few months ago and my daughter joined today. So this is now even more special to me.
I Have had`my spirits lifted when I was low and have tried to help others when I could.
It feels so good to be with like minded people.
I thank the owners and mods for keeping us civilized in our discussions.
I can be a real spit fire in real life but do watch myself here.
