My name is Carina (d'oh). I may be in my 20s and already developing arthritis, but I swear I'm not an adult yet. My background mostly consists of number crunching, stapling papers, and tinkering with a small slice of R&D, but creative writing has always been a secret pleasure of mine, so here I am! Since you're already here, feel free to drop by my wall for a chat.

I always knew that deep down in every human heart, there is mercy and generosity. No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
