I am a woman in my 40's living in Connecticut. I am the mother of two teens, a girl and a boy and the proud wife of a good man. I teach Krav Maga (Self Defense), I love America, and was tired of sitting on the sides lines watching.


I used to be a Democrat, before the Columbine massacre. My children were still young at the time and it shook me that a child could be so empty, as to shoot his fellow classmates at point blank range while laughing. I have been on a learning journey since. I learn every day and it is my hope to share some of the life lessons I have learned. I have a sarcastic sense of humor, which gets me in trouble, but I wouldn't have it any other way. If I can't laugh at myself or situations around me than I would cry, I'd rather laugh. I welcome responses to my posts and appreciate constructive criticism.
