1I depend on them for strength when I can't get there myself. I am a very very very private person, and it might not seem that way because of what I share to the world but until the day it becomes a threat to me or my family I want to get the world to get an understanding of the legend I will become. And it's a great place to speak the truth when someone's out there to put a twist on it. I also follow some people because they have an amazing torch I light my candle off of. And I know others light there candle of my torch... so tweet on
