I have not been here in a very, very long amount of time.
Some has to do with the "gales of November" as the wind/weather changes so quickly from day to dayand by a littlle after 5 it is already dark.
I think it probably is just me but I have a difficult time hearing people say "it is time to celebrate Veteran's Day."
I have never been able to reconcile killing as being okay when one is wearing a military uniform but harvesting stem cells from the remains of painful decisions women have to make and/or nature having to make the choice and so many persons inflicted with diseases like Parkinson's like my brother could be helped by more stem cell research--not less. It is difficult for me to juxtapose the man I call my brother,Don , now with the man he was just 7 years ago
9 of my 10 brothers served in the U.S. military from Korea through; and beyond Viet Nam. WE always sent them cookies/warm things to wear, a favored treat and all of our love. We worried about them and we prayed for the safe return each time one more enlisted or was drafted
I do not believe that man should be making the decision for another person to die in the name of war or during Conflicts.
I am sorry for those left behind but war and conflicts do not solve a thing and for me this is not a day to celebrate.
I hope that I have not offended anyone here with my feelings about this but this is a place that loves each member no matter what and we are not judged for having world perspectives that are different than many hold dear to them.

I do not think anyone here would ever mind what someone has to say. That's why I love it so much.

How could there be any offense from someone who is expressing kindly her beliefs? :P

Marjorie, I proclame the superiority of LOVE, but not that of the arms!

Hello everyone. I miss you all but I just can not seem to shake what is making me feel so very uneasy.
