a note on compassion
while there is a diversity of opinion on this board, respect is the denominator. I as well as anybody can get as assertive as possible, but remember anyone of us is a vulnerable entity. and when that happens, like a sickness, loss of loved ones, hard times, suddenly the compassion emerges.
which is why i, as a military war veteran, an anti-war veteran, have used my scars to try to affect the process. not afraid of dying, not afraid of fighting. been there done that. out of the loop of propagandised repetitive programmed thinking.
