respect then most have to offer. No one deserves to critize another unless
they are willing to add something about themselves. In most cases thats
difficult yet we have critics.

- Thank you so much, Joseph, and thank you for the
smile you inspired too by the kind things you
Surprisingly (in a pleasant way) the person who
made the critical post to me, extended a sincere
apology very shortly afterwards. Giving credit
its due, it takes a big person to admit errors in
judgment, and I am grateful for it.
Thanks again :~}
- This is such a tough site sometimes. I see the best and worst of humans
interacting but it's very honest and caring at the same time. Thank God that
there is more on people's minds than the day to day crap! 10-4
- I realize you sent this e-mail a few weeks ago, but I'm just now getting
around to reading it. I thought you should know that I loved it. I was very
touched and it did make me stop and think for a moment. Thank you so much
for giving me one moment of your precious time. It is a moment that will
last for much longer than just 60 seconds.
