I never heard about Scientology when I was in high school. Most likely because news didn’t travel so fast back when I was a teenager. I didn’t have a cell phone or a personal computer with which I could freely jump onto the communication lines of the world and pull information from whatever sources were out there. I was more of an outdoorsy kind of guy and didn’t watch a whole lot of TV, but I definitely listened to the radio.
I have good friends who are Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Buddhist, and many more who are still searching and haven’t quite made up their minds.
A legacy I want to be known for is that I helped others believe in the basic goodness of man, and that I helped others to escape from behavior patterns that did not align with their basic goodness.
