I wish I could understand why men raped woman? what exactly is it that allows a person to do such an act. To be able to know for sure if they are ever truly sorry when they tell you they are. To be able to be in their head when they sleep at night to know if they are ever traumatized by the terrible actions they forced on others.

"I know this is probably not what you expected.." I didn't expect anything! There is no right or wrong answer to this one..just something that you wish you better understood! I'm clueless about how a government grant is written, filed or received.

Why people think they are entitled to things other people are not. For instance a woman came into a doctors office and asked if she hand anyone ahead of her. The girl at the counter said yes three people then the woman said "I better not because my husband is under the care of hospice". I am a nurse what difference does that make. So if he is under the care of hospice life goes on and it is not the other doctors problem or the whole worlds problem. The person who brought the women to the office would not sit with her. The drive went out into her car to wait. Another man came into the same doctors office and demanded to be seen "right now" He was not patient nor was he nice about it. What makes him entitled to be seen before someone who has waited their days, weeks or maybe months for their appointment and this man demands to be seen right now. Can you explain why some people think they are entitled to things other people are not.

How people can be intentionally mean. I have never understood how anyone can do something to someone when they know its going to hurt that person. Accidents and oversights happen, but for someone to cause harm intentionally is just beyond my comprehension.

I have a lot to learn on every subject, every life experience and life in general. I will never know all there is about anything and I am ok with that.My goal is to keep learning everyday about everything that I can. Knowledge is power

Cruel and hurtful friends who lie about you and cause you nothing but stress and then deny they've done nothing wrong. I'd like to understand why these sort of people are nice to your face and then come on here under a different id and run you down. Does it make them feel better about them selves???

Probably math. I really suck at math. My Mom is great at it but I have so much trouble with it. I'd also like to learn more about painting and drawing. I'd love to be able to express myself that way. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I am not as learned as I should claim that I could better understand. We all have very less knowledge of some thing. How could we say that we could better understand. As concern with myself, I could not understand that who am I? I know nothing even about myself, then how should I say that I could better understand about some thing else. Sorry for such response, but it is based on truth.

The American voting system. I find it so convoluted that it doesn't seem to me that the result are simply from the individual citizen's choice.
