I was born in a hardcore conservative family. My brother lives in Boulder Colorado, where I will be living next year. Although some conservative views have been imprinted on his brain from birth and he seems to stick to 'em, Boulder has brought out the best in him, influencing him to believe in some liberal perspectives. Both my parents look down on him and talk badly about his change of heart to the rest of our family and friends and even tell my brother that they are not going to financially support him anymore. They have no idea about my views. My brother does actually have a lot of conservative views, I however do not have any. I believe so strongly that Gays and Lesbians should have the freedom to wed. I believe that the government should be taking special care of our beautiful world and environment. I believe in Marijuana legalization and for more financial support of the homeless. If they knew this, they would take away everything. It's like I am going against my family. Lying to them, I feel terrible. They have noooo idea how much I smoke and I just wish they understood the beauty of it. I feel adopted... like I am not one of them. I had attended Catholic school for many years of my life, and there I felt like I did not fit in too. I was going to school every day with a building full of staunch republicans. I just feel so alone in my situation.
