Marriage - how we make that first step the wrong one (Article) - 10/31/2006 9:22:28 AM
Making that first step the wrong one is a simple as roping a heart attack victim in their time of need. In other words, don't ever, ever, EVER do it.

This is cute. Reminds me of walking down the strip and downtown in Vegas how it used to be but like you say they all end up on the ground and Vegas decided to clean up the town I don't ever remember hearing anyone ever saying Thank You like you That's really Nice of you. Good For you. So did you go to the dr? hehehehehehe
Have a good day and Thank You again Keep Smilin' !

The first time I ever went to family planning, I looked over all the pamphlets there and was horrified that I might have one or all of those diseases. Thankfully, I had none, but the poking and inserting of foreign objects into the vaginal area made me rethink my stand on even wanting to go on birth control, in order to allow some boy to "go all the way with me".
Thanks for the laugh, Robyn.

Brochure-itis looms everywhere. You nailed the issue with "we have flyers and pamphlets thrust in our face or our hands on an almost monotonous basis."
It's just a job and they probably don't read them anymore than we do. You'd think the company's would get a clue!
Thanks for the laugh. I'll watch how I walk all day.

Why do we always blame other people... (Article) - 10/29/2002 7:21:00 AM
Very well written, but peace at any cost is slavery and that's not an option. You cannot negotiate with those who hate you, just as you cannot talk with someone who's just punched you in the face. There's a difference between chossing peace over aggression and peace over defense. The first does take courage and work - it's easier, when powerful to just try and impose your will on others, choosing negotiation is the harder, more courageous path in that case, but choosing "peace" instead of defense, after you've been attacked is moral and ethical cowardice and rightly results, first in surrender, followed by slavery by the aggressor. // Fine writing despite our disagreements.

Admirable and thought-provoking ideas but how many of us, actually believe in this? For judging someone's character and virtues, you dont need grave situations or appalling scenarios. Day-to-day activities can classicly potray a person's intentions and feelings. Secondly, one can only estimate the agony of loss, when he himself endures it with dread and repulsion. But all dont tread the path of forgiveness....they feel that the only medicine of their grief lies in seeing other people suffer and squirm in the same way they did...Thats the only consolidation they want..So, here comes the million dollar question..WHO, amongst us, would take the initiative, of being strong enough to forgive and FORGET? Who will be brave and selfless enough to save others from the anguish that he himself endured? Frankly, I dont think many people fall perfect on that criteria..but then again, you are probably right...Someone's got to do it !

Splendidly expressed, Robyn! You've given someone a priceless gift! Perhaps this poem should have been entitled, "Who You Are" or "That's You"

Love the deep sense and meaning in your poem. Be true to yourself, speak the truth in season and out of season; least you create spiritual murder.

When taking these steps, it seems we've become so concerned with what kind of shoes we are wearing that we've forgotten where we've been, aren't aware of where we are, and have no idea where we're going.
Thanks for the wake-up call.
