My name is Rick and it would be my pleasure to have an opportunity to chat and perhaps meet with you. For the most part, I enjoy meeting people no matter their race or background. I believe that is how we begin to "UNDERSTAND" ourselves so that we have the ability, time and patience to to learn more about ourselves and how and when we fit in with compassion and understanding of the human kind. "IT'S NOT ABOUT ME" has to be understood before we can begin to understand others. On the lighter side, I enjoy free time and I still like to play rather it's me with that which entertains me or with others who enjoy the same type of relaxation, work, play, art, travel, recreation, service to others and so much more. I never want to stop learning, growing and serving where I can. I am a veteran and served my country with pride and dignity. I love this once great nation but it's not the world I grew up in and my concern now is that a remnant of freedom to choose, to pray, to follow in the footsteps of greatness that once governed this nation will be lost. God bless y'all and God bless the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA !! Be safe out there, love on someone every day, live with dignity and pride, bless the children, pray for an end to the very wrong direction to which this country is being led and.....find a way to make each and every day a MAGNIFICENT DAY !!
