Hello, my name is Victoria, here is a little bit about me ..... I am 37, single parent, and I am in the Air Force, currently stationed in Montana. I 've enjoyed my travels around, to include, England, France, Greece, Belgium, Amsterdam & Rotterdam, Kaiserslaugten, great deal of the US, to include three years in Hawaii .. \m/ .. I like walking/running on my treadmill, but have found more enjoyment walking outdoors in the spring/summer. I like to do low level hikes, & bike wherever (around 10-14 miles 3x a week during the late spring to early fall months), ...I most enjoy what my son most enjoys, like kite flying, time spent with our animals, his sports programs, his love for skateboarding. Last year I spent my summer relaxing and planting roses (I hope they return unharmed from winter this year), I like the variety in color that the wild flowers of Montana produce and actually find joy and peace when nurturing my lawn... I do believe I am a hopeless romantic that finds good in everyone and everything (until given reason not too)... I spend most of my time making my son's life so very happy ... then working ... and last but not least, helping the people around me (in vt or rt).. smile and laugh ~grinin~ ... welcome to my world

I have been asked to discuss Friendship.
Into that subject I think I'll dip.
A most interesting concept indeed,
People often abuse it in need.
Friendship is a most important thing.
It has sort of an official ring.
It should never be taken lightly,
And it does not always glow brightly.
Friendship is not merely acquaintance.
Acquaintance equates to transience.
Transience is not everlasting.
To claim it is so is bombasting.
Friendship, to truly last, must be earned.
If it's not earned, then you will be burned.
It must prove itself through test of time.
Don't give it without reason or rhyme.
A most real and true Friendship is rare.
It is given with utmost of care.
In it are contained dangerous truths.
It's not for opportunistic sleuths.
Real Friendship will surely last always.
It's not measured in hours or days.
In it you seek not that which you gain.
To do so is the straight path to pain.
When will we finally awaken?
False Friendship is always forsaken.
A Friend not everyone can be called.
Into that viscous trap be not lulled.
Friendship must be based upon giving.
If the Friendship continues living.
So "What's Friendship?" you say with a frown.
It is the will to lay your life down.
So the next time you call someone Friend.
Give your soul to him that he may rend
And if he is a just and true Friend.
He will unto you his own soul lend.
Then each of you has within his power.
The ability to Friendship sour.
Yet each one intuitively knows
No harm will be done and Friendship grows.
It is the soldier, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press
It is the soldier, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to demonstrate
It is the soldier, not the lawyer,
who has given us a right to a fair trial
It is the soldier who salutes the flag,
who serves under the flag,
whose coffin is draped by the flag,
who allows the protester to burn the flag.
