Wow, thanks for the really thoughtful comments on that last post. I honestly expected there to be more discussion/disagreement than there was. This leads me to two possible conclusions. Either you guys are truly my people, those who get me right away and we're all on the same page, which, considering the numbers just seems unlikely, though that is the magic of blogging, finding your tribe in the midst of a huge crowd. Conclusion number 2 is that y'all are just too polite to disagree with me here in my little space on the internet, which is also awesome and rare, and I think you may be the best readers on he planet.
That said, I don't mind you know. I love a healthy debate from time to time. I expect people to disagree with me. One of the most interesting discoveries of my adult life is finally understanding that people really aren't just like me on the inside. They have totally different fundamental assumptions and, wow, that's really interesting.
Twitter is a great way to observe this. On one of my accounts I follow republicans, democrats, pro-Isreal, anti-Isreal, pro-healthcare reform, anti-healthcare reform, etc. They are mostly all there because they are also passionate about justice, human rights, and taking care of people. They differ a lot about how to get that done. Most of them are articulate and intelligent to boot.
Does she have a point? No, not really. I just love you all and am amazed and thankful for the community that is here and the diversity of the people in it. Seriously. It's been 6 days since I left my house to go anywhere, and that was just our regular weekly trip to Aaron's parents for dinner. Without you guys and this outlet for all the stuff in my head I might actually go insane.
Thanks for walking with me through this journey we call life.
