I am not sure I would call it MY mistake. I was 11 years old, under the influence of my parent. I was still a child. Just as I didn't make the choice was vehicle our family purchased, what city we lived in, what laundry detergent my mother bought, I also didn't have the choice of what religion I was.
I still do not believe that children can be made accountable for a life long committment when the courts of our land still say that children are under the care of parents. If at 11 years old age I had gotten a gun from my mother's gun cabinet, under my state's law, she would be prosecuted as she was the adult who was supposed to be in charge of the weapon.
It's not my mistake. I was not an informed adult. But yes, a mistake it definitely was.
