I hope no one is offended by the title of the thread.. it was just the first thing I thought of.
I am pretty new to ATS. I've only been reading for a few months.

The purpose is simple.. to get us all, in these divided times, to reach out to those that are different to find common ground.
I hope I don't get ran out of ATS for this, but I love meeting new people.. especially people that are totally different than me. I always find
after a little searching, that they can still be one of the best friends I have ever had. I would have never known that if I hadn't opened my
Anyway.. my mind is a run on sentence at times, so if you are confused but a little interested, just let me know and I will try to slow myself down a
