I Believe

        I believe in the power of 4X4,

the heart it takes to stand up for others,

the being a bigger person than others,

the love and faith of God,

the feeling you get playing Baseball,

Strength, Faith, Affection of Jesus Christ.

But (something you don’t believe in, e.g. “but the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated”) Conservatism .

I believe in fighting for what you believe in,

I believe in going against gay marriage,

I believe in having fun with out trouble,

Helping,sharing, giving,

And I believe in Standing up for others for when they are down.. (longest)


My Credo Essay

  I am Landon Smith and I grew up in a small town friendly county called Rutherford County.

I kind of life on and off of the saying, “If your gonna be stupid, you better be smart”.

I have done some pretty dumb things and I have learned my lesson but, I now know if I am stupid, be smart about doing it. If you don’t cover up your mistakes people will bust you.

I was being stupid one day and didn't cover up my tracks and I caught busted with my dad for trespassing. I have now learned that when I used to trespass I should have covered up because Im glad that my dad caught me and not the law. I advise the reader of my book to cover up there tracks because it has taught me that when things are going bad just cover up your tracks and put your faith in God.

I am close to this beliefs because they have fought me the right from the wrong. If you don’t the right thing the first time and not be stupid you do not have to worry about covering up your tracks. Always look up to others and when you have a life saying, stick to it. If you think that it helps you now then more than likely it will help you out.

Personally I do think that during my lifetime my sayings will change. When i get my truck it will change and/or i will have two sayings. Throughout my lifetime I will do a lot more things than do stupid stuff. I will always live through the sayings that I make because they fit in my life somehow.

This is significant to me because, It was a good lesson that I learned as a kid that my dad taught me and I think that it will come in handy sometimes when I think that I am doing something that I shouldn’t. I think that it would help some others in their lifetime as well.
