    Default what do you have faith in?

    “You say that you people don’t burn folk and sacrifice people anymore, but that’s what true faith would mean, y’see? Sacrificin’ your own life, one day at a time, to the flame, declarin’ the truth of it, workin’ for it, breathin’ the soul of it. That’s religion. Anything else is just . . . is just bein’ nice. And a way of keepin’ in touch with the neighbors.”

    My religion teaches self reflection and questioning, to arrive at a self derived set of ethics. And thats how I try to live my life.
    What do you believe in?

    Like others I believe in myself. I believe in myself to make good choices for myself and my kids, to cope with anything that comes my way, that my resilience will help me bounce back.
