Olive Branch

The last few days here on EP have been filled with vicious, ugly attacks.  Some unprovoked.  Friends defending friends.  Which I will applaud to my last day.  That's what friends do. 

And, although, I was hurt and my heart broken by the vexatious insults, I am a firm believer in Karma.  And for the sake of my inner peace, I am offering an olive branch to everyone that was hurt in the drama this past weekend. 

We don't have to be "friends", but all the drama is getting out of hand.  Everyone is dealing with issues of their own.  And, no one but that person, knows what it's like to be that person.  No one knows what I'm going through.  No one knows what you're going through. 

I use EP as a support system.  As a sounding board.  A place to play and laugh and share my experiences.  And if I can help one person through something, that makes me a happy girl. 

So, again, after all the hurt that was suffered, all the tears I cried, I am offering an olive branch, an offer of peace for everyone hurt this weekend.  Actually, I am offering an olive branch to everyone.  Whether they were hurt or not. 

The world is ugly enough.  I think it's time for a little peace.

This is a very nice story CK - I am sorry if I hurt anyone in any way this weekend - I don't know alot of people here and so many of the ones i do know where involved.<br />

I posted some thoughts and a page from guide book on my blog I thought it was appropriate after this weekend EP has changed my life over the last couple months I look forward to getting to my friends better. <br />

Thank you, Myonis.

This is so sad and unfortunate... I admire your willingness to move on and extend the peace offering, CK. It has to start somewhere. Or stop, depending on which end of the story you're looking at. Moo, don't leave.

That's exactly why I posted this. I know you agree, you're a good man. And I thank you for everything you've done.

I agree... but we have to see who else feels the same
