There has been all kinds of talk about where we fail ourselves here lately. Lot's of talk about those who have left this site because we did not do well enough. Fears that we are losing it as a community. So be it. We are an ever changing and evolving community, a very imperfect one, and we will have to ride that out. We as a community are not entitled to better than what everyone has to surf to get through in this life.
But tonight, after reading the diary of commonmass, one in many diaries that have asked this community for its support, love and witness in times of need, and received it in full force, I am quite overcome with the love and kindness here. Again.
We don't always get it right, but we get it right when it really counts. We come to the aide of each other when asked, and give it all we can, in this mostly anonymous on line community, where we know each other only by our handles, and our participation in the discussion.
Yes, we do some things very well here. And I just felt the need to offer some balance to all the gloom and doom of where we're headed. Frankly, there's more love and concern here than I've found anywhere else on the internet. More community than I've found anywhere else on the internet.
It's good to see the good. That's all.
