Silly middle child

I find myself trying to act as a peace-maker, again. I have friends on both sides of the gun issue plaguing my social group currently. My personal feelings are that firearms are immoral and yet I maintain friendships with very pro-gun people both here and in other parts of the country. (Hi revjohn!)

Part of me thinks I must have some sort of emotional deficiency if I don't get worked up one way or another on issues like these. Heck, I don't get worked up about anything that I can think of. Certainly not for any length of time that would make people act irrationally back at me.

Perhaps growing up with people more volatile than myself taught me to remain calm as a defense mechanism that has now become a core part of my being. Very zen; I remain still while the world rushes around me.
