  1. …and, yet, we knew so much….we just never want to admit that which makes us sad or causes us to turn our heads in shame or denial. We think that by not admitting the truth about this situation or that situation that we do not have to share the responsibility of making it right. “But, I am only ONE person”, we say to ourselves…”What difference will I make.” And, we go on with our lives and compartmentalize those thoughts and rationalize it all because we are just one person.
    It’s not that we know so little, it’s because we know so much…we know that if all the “ones” banded together and and said, “That’s enough, here, let me help”. We know that one voice can turn into thousands, but we are too busy…we care, we really do, but our lives have been assigned to other tasks and they are more pleasant. We know that it is better to give than to receive, but we are afraid of who is real and who is not and will they take our good intentions and run with them until we are scared to give again.
    …yes, we know so little and yet, we don’t know anything at all.

      1. You are welcome. I hope you don’t mind if I comment again. I really like your site and just happened to stumble upon it…another one of life’s happy blunders!
