well, I grew up in a pretty well established working class neighborhood. Mostly white, mostly protestant. I was the born in last year of the Baby Boomers (1964). I don't feel like a boomer, or gen x, but there it is. In High school I developed a huge crush on a girl. She invited me to a youth group her friends had established. Any excuse to hang around her was all I needed. It was a Christian group, we met Fridays with songs, praise, and a message. A few months later, she rejected my advance. Heartbroken, but I had made other friends. so I kept going to church. Then to slightly more ecstatic church and then finally fully committed to a foursquare church. Met a girl and got married. Had kids, had a home. Going to church every week =, kids going to youth on Wednesdays. Managed to do that for years. Then, in 91,, I found Nirvana. I wont bother all yall with the lifechanging experience that grunge at the time did for me. All I knew is I felt the pain they were expressing. I started doing more science, reading, etc. And the magics of god got smaller and smaller. Eventually I realized that god don't make sense. So, about 5 years ago, it's all over. I am embarrassed at the things I said and the way I treated some people. Now I've got this life to live my best.
