Re: A Sinclair by any other name
I was interested in your message.
I have always been sad that because my nana was born female we couldn't
carry the Sinclair name. Being a female didn't make her, my mum or me
anyless Sinclair than anyone else but have always lost credibility with the
SInclair line because we don't carry the name. My Sinclair blood runs strong
and if I have children then one of them will definitely have Sinclair in
their name. I am a Sinclair, I love my Sinclair history and link as did my
dear sweet nana who always signed her name Beatrice Mary Ward ( nee
Sinclair) she never let the nee Sinclair out. I aim in the next year or so
to get an engraving for her grave that tells she was and will always be a

I was saddened recently by a dear friend of mine telling me who he has
discovered a new world in drug use. People say drugs open their minds but to
what extent can you base truth and reality on this open mind, i can tell you
of many i know where simple drugs even have shattered lives. I have spent
time at university and there studied sociology. Thats how I opened up my
mind , by studying many aspects of why people are socialised into different
behaviours and customs. I studied several different aspects from Deviance to
World Hunger and my mind and my life has been opened up to so so much more
than dugs could ever give me and now I can look at things from so many

I have actually studied a book called escape attempts wich deals with why
and how people try and escape reality. An believe me it isn't just those
three you mentioned but I wouldn't blame people for trying to escape but
there is only one final escape. I lost one of my best friends to that when i
was a teenager, he didn't think he could have gone on, but i feel angry with
him because anything could have been better than the option out he took.
We need to be strong and have hope for the future and not judge each other
too much. We all choose to cope in our own ways. I am 20, still a young
thing, I will always fight to survive and keep an open mind.
