    What would you do for your kid?

    Would you do anything?

    Would you work in a job that you don't like that much? Would you go to church even if you have to work Sunday afternoon? Would you work an extra job to pay for an after school program? Would you really do anything? Would you move to a better environment?

    I can honestly say that I love my child more than I love myself. Hell, that's not much of a litmus test, I don't love myself all that much... but I love her! There are times when I don't want to be that good of a person.. but I would never want her to know that... would I do anything?

    I will.

    Deep question Captain Ray.

    Yes, I would do anything for my daughter. I would like to think that most parents would be willing to do anything for their children's best interest. If any parents could honestly say that they aren't willing to sacrifice for their kids....then they probably shouldn't have had them.

    She can get a divorce then, because I am not having them. I replace women like business folks replace workers all the time. So it will not be a problem getting another good woman who does not want children.
