I know very little about these two topics, but the events of the last month are smashing them hard and fast into my thick scull. I was brought up baptist/ christian so I know very little about buddhism, and very little about the world I seek to know more about.  I don’t want to be the person who runs away.  Like my high school headmaster shouted as he stood over me calling me a coward when I quit the christian school and went back to homeschooling. I don’t want to be a coward.  I want to be someone who works through even the hard things, grows, learns understands builds and becomes a better more wholesome person. More complete.
