15. My father is a Republican
He's also one of the people who taught me to speak my mind and hold my own opinions. He and his two sisters, my aunts, would get together at family gatherings and the talk would always turn to politics - this was in the midst of Vietnam. My Aunt Mardie was a Democrat, my Aunt Alice was a Communist - needless to say, the conversations could get pretty lively.

But they always respected each others' opinions (even when debating them loudly) and they always, always very obviously loved each other. My father and I have had some pretty lively debates ourselves but they never, ever get personal or nasty and we always remember that the most important thing is that we love each other.
