About Ed Ebbs
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI was born in Los Angeles and grew-up in Culver City, California until my parents moved to Oregon when I was in High School.

My wife and I love to travel and meet other people. Recently my wife and I went to the Brittany Area of France to meet with relatives. One of my great grandfathers migrated from that area and we were the first to return. I was able to visit the house my great grandfather grew up in and look out the windows he look through in his time...very meaningful for me. My heritage is basically European with a blend of Norse, Basque, Finnic, Belgic, and Polish.  My wife's heritage is Norwegian, Russian, German and Irish. LOL, we seem to get along :-)

I am a grandfather and I love my family with all my heart. I care for most people and
I believe that people deserve a chance, and I believe we are all one race, the human race.

I believe that just because I believe in something, it does not make me right and others wrong, and I reserve the right to change my position on certain issues base on well structure arguments that convince me to change my mind.

I believe that ordinary people should not be mere clay to be molded by an oppressor class...I believe that all of us are created equal.

I believe that the end does not justify the means to that end, so I believe that the journey in life matters...
My personal belief is Jesus Christ was liberal based on his philosophy for compassion, equality, inclusion, forgiveness, tolerance, peace, and most importantly love.

~ Peace

The results have been posted for: What makes you wake up each and everyday!
I am honored to have read all of the submitted poems, and there were a couple of beautiful poems that were off topic I thought, but still beautifully written. I think that this may be the first and last contest I sponsor for a long time. I was torn how to account for various errors in some poems that otherwise were great poems. Some made me smile....

Thank You to all of those that participated!
I am humbled with this experience.
~ Peace
