I have been on this site for about a year and half now. I have seen people come and go....some of them are missed for their sense of humor.....others for their insights and kindness....some I don't miss because of their cruelty and negativity. Those of us that remain have watched people became engaged, lose a child or a spouse or a friend to accidents and illness. We have laughed together and cried together...and we have fought together. What has remained a steady beacon of light throughout these 18 months for me has been the friendships. We seem to be fighting the war of negativity and cruelty to others again. And it is time to take a stand against it.....here where the memories and bonds are strong...just as we would in our own community. I still believe silence is a powerful tool against negativty and cruelty.....don't fuel the fire....don't respond....don't argue.....the small person sitting behind a computer screen only feels empowered to continue. If we figuratively turn our backs on them....there is no joy or power for them. Please consider my request......just food for thought on a cold January day in Ohio.

Re: Thanks Mom ..Great advice .Did I tell you I love you latley...Mauh! irishpatti write: Re:I usually try to stay on the lightside. I'm here for the fun times. I don't want to pay money to listen to raggers! I've made a lot of friends on this site that I've had to my home and met at the rodeo. These are the poeple that I enjoy in my life, and would like to continue to have a friendship with. I'm not by any stretch of imagination a game player. I'm down to earth, love to laugh and enjoy good friends. I place a real high value on friendship. I don't have time for wishy washy people who don't know what they're doing from one minute to the nrxt. Decide what your values are and stand up for them. Otherwise people just lack respect for you..... Take resonsibilty for what you say and stand by it! suburbansweetheart write: Redsunset I think your right! I try to stay positive but sometimes my own insecurities get the best of me . I have been here for sometime now and feel I have made good friends and had the opportunity to visit many. I am grateful for all my experiences here on Bk. I can be alittle negative at times but Thats something I'm working on... I have learned alot about myself and the people I choose as to be friends with. What an awesome site!

Sunset quietly turns her back and stays silent....sometimes the most powerful thing you can say.....is nothing at all.

Re:If you have a problem with me e-mail me and we can talk no need in ruining RS blog you have followed me from blog to blog and attacked me then you retract your comment, I am sorry if I have offended you but it was not my intention. Keep things happy and positive here really! Iluvair write: Re:Negative blogs? lol RS was trying to have a positive blog here & as usual you can't make a comment without referencing something negative. The people who you so blatantly accused pubicly on here in a previous blog of blocking you (like who cares, anyway?) don't have any negative blogs or posts either for that matter. Do you think people who blog, or just sit back & read them like I do can't see the truth? Sorry, Sunset, you have a wonderful blog here & a brilliant idea. Carry on! HDCouple4U2NV write: Re:Strong powerful women with positive attitudes is what I look for too, but they are the women that will tell ya, if ya got a bugger hanging out your nose. It's the cruel mean hearted bulling groups that attack folks on here, that are the power not like you and your friends that allways try to bring out the best. I have fallen victium to them and have lashed back then I was the bad person so now I ignore them, they have all blocked me and I think that is funny cause I don't want to repsond to their negative blogs.

I always thought girl power had something to do with the Spice Girls. But,according to the definition, I can safely say that it leaves me out of the girl power catagory. girl power noun Definition: young women's scope for own decisions: the ability of or opportunity for teenage girls and young women to make decisions for themselves and shape their own lives

Re:Lorraine, as my sisters and I used to tell our mother, just because it pops in your head doesn't give you the right to blurt it out. There is something called discretion. If people 'hate' you (a bit extreme I think, honest, truthfully, I do think that) I doubt it is because you speak what you perceive to be the truth. It's because you do so without any restraint or discretion. Honesty is the best policy but discretion is the better part of valor. Silence is golden. In other words, it may be the truth but just because it is doesn't mean it has to be spoken or shared. Speaking the truth or stating the obvious does not elevate you simply for doing so nor does it make it ok because it happens to be the truth. Sometimes it is best to just hush. With that, I will just hush. :) lorraine2000 write: I sat back and watched too, don't hate me because of truth. I will be the first to tell you if you have a booger in your nose, your zipper is undone, etc. I have read way too many blogs on here, where the "girl power thing" is way too prevalant. Sometimes good old truth is the best. Sometimes the best freind you can be, is th the one that tells the truth.
