Dearest Barbara, it will be a good New Year now. Thank you. It always hurts when we lose a member and we celebrate when they come back. When we have to let them go to God in Heaven, this is different and we already have lost so many.
Let us truly hold what we have and cherish this treasure. (because in a blink it is gone) May the new year be good to you and bring you peace.
Dear Lenarda - well said that women!!!!
You always write from the heart and I have the deepest respect and regard for you. My fondest wishes for a peaceful and happy New Year.

As I began reading your message, a picture of my mum came into my mind, when she had something to say that meant a lot to her, her left hand would go to her hip and her right hand would point and wag her finger at us to emphasise the importance of what she was saying. Right on Mama Lenarda!!!

John welcome back, you did nothing wrong. All you did was step aside and not participate in lowering the standard of KS GROUP.
As in all families we have our ups and downs, now let us focus on what the Group was really created for. Research, Remembrance, RESPECT and of course, nothing good happens without Reconciliation.
Happy New Year 2013 and may it be a much nicer, happier, with the group actually having empathy for each other, focusing on finding new Historical Articles, telling the truth, (truth is truth) and teaching new members with patience and guiding them in true assistance.
We are unique and special, so why are we trying to destroy ourselves and lower our standards, really stop and think, this is not about only you, there are many others in the group who benefit so much from all the wonderful information and if we do not respect our moderators, I myself have been put in order for mistakes or wrong information, then we have no format, boundary, respect, guidelines and are just a bunch of feral people rioting in a paddock the same as any other Forum.
We are Kresy-Siberia Group, unique and special and we are mentors, guides, historians, with actual Countries around the Globe, learning from us and many do not even realise, we are healers of our people, with a very important role to fulfil. Please be responsible, as there are many more people out there lost, looking for someone to assist them find home, find family, find who they are and where they come from and they want to do this in safety with understanding people as they can be fragile, once the pain of the journey sets in and they will keep coming because we offer them safe haven of research and we do need new members. Think about it, what happens when we, the old survivors are gone and the young ones need information? It will be the new ones we take on board now, who will keep teaching the new arrivals and keep KS alive and functioning.
We ourselves have been there and this is why we can assist and give them example and strength and understanding.
Kresy-Siberia would not exist without us and we would not be able to reveal or record or research with like minded people without Kresy-Siberia Group.
New day, New Year, start again and all hopefully better in the future. We are Kresy people, who are unique and special, take this to heart and rejoice that we have avenue to share this in a wonderful group of rare people.
Moderators, am I going to get into trouble for this rant? It is from my heart to all, because I see the goodness and potential in everyone and I have been very saddened by the high standard being dropped because of emotional persons. I should know I am one of them, forgive me and letâ€™s get on with the job of being KS Group.
- Please, people, haven t I been punished enough? Imagine the polar opposite of Sally Field gushing, ... you like me, right now, you like me! I m more likeMessage 2 of 15 , Dec 27, 2012View SourcePlease, people, haven't I been punished enough? Imagine the polar opposite of Sally Field gushing, " ... you like me, right now, you like me!" I'm more like Lou Grant without his charm and wisdom, moulded in an era when becoming "part of the story" was the height of unprofessionalism earning the scorn of one's peers.
Ironically, I brought this humiliating attention on myself after complaining that the focus had shifted too much on personality and away from substance. Apologies for being so ungracious, because I know your welcome back comments are intended sincerely. The sooner we return to the story, our history, the happier I will be.
