Hi Norma,

     I am sorry for what you're going through right now.

     I saw Steve's unfortunate post late last night after getting home from Carraba's, where my wife & and I treated two friends to dinner for their 11th anniversary. 
     Norma, you are "on fire" for humanity, passionately interested in everything which affects us and life on Earth in general.  It's a wonderful way to be.  I share most of your concerns but, although I sometimes weep for the likely future path of our species, I don't think I can match your passion and commitment. It's more than most people can, or want to, do.  You should take that into consideration when people lash out.  I know it's not an easy thing to do.

     I guess my point is, don't sacrifice what's good in a search for the ideal.  The search is key; don't give up on that, but consider, concerning our group, slowing down to a speed they can keep up with. . .

     Please don't give up on OFH.  Nothing humanity touches is perfect, but I think there's a part of your "soul" they can nourish and respond to, although it may take awhile for wounds to heal.

                                                                         Sincerely, D
