I really wanted to contact the woman, but I was, I wanted to call her and tell her I was really sorry, but I was afraid I'd kill her. I didn't know what to do." -- Mary's response to reports that the sound of her voices causes a NY woman to have seizures. "I choose to look for the good in people, not the bad. I choose to be trusting rather than untrusting. Choose to look at the negative things that happen as negative things that happen for a good reason, and, um, try always to go back to my roots.
