The ability to cure all diseases.

Dedicated, fun-loving and loyal.

To the future, to a time when all people treat others as equals and bullying is no longer an issue.

If you were to receive a surprise package in the mail today, what would be in it?
I’ve been told I’m a geek (by my wife), so it would be the latest thing in technology.
