The youngest of four at the time, she would have been well with in her rights to ….
For centuries, centuries, I feel like, people have been trying to change others. Why? Why I ask? I am reminded of that episode of Boy Meets World, where the boys do a little skit about the stupidity of men to win back their wives and girlfriends All because they had the brilliant idea they could change and control them.
