Law is a big part of my life. First carved in stone on a mountain, it is a foundation for life. Understanding this foundation, makes you fairly unique as a human being and a problem solver for others. The pat on the shoulder for this is sufficient to continue with it and wanting to be better (for others). That is why Law is my life and controls your life.
