"Why can't people understand that an injustice against one is an injustice against all???"

because it makes people move out of their comfort zone if they have to think about others...esp., those that are different from themselves.
I hear it all the time. People somehow think if they stick up for others outside of their religious or political beliefs they are somehow agreeing with them and therefore being disloyal to their own. Which of course we know is not true. People sometimes will care more what others think of them then in doing whats right.
Like if you have a friend that is Pagan and you stick up for their rights...other people will think you are somehow betraying your own religion. Or if you stick up for the rights of someone from a different political group(say a communist) you are somehow less American.

I dont know....people just dont stop to think sometimes....if it makes them move out of their comfort zone. Or if it makes things a little to uncomfortable.

In our mortal lives we were never ever promised it would be all effortless....only worth the effort.

Change of subject!

My three oldest got back from a mini EFY on Saterday night and LOVED IT!
My middle dd didnt even get mad at anyone!
They got to go to GeorgeTown University in Georgetown KY.

My oldest dd may have found a fellow she likes a lot!
She is almost 17...in a few months.


I have to go to Lexington today. My youngest dd has to have a MRI...just for a checkup. She has Neurofibromatosis and once in a while has to have things checked up.

Well I'm off.
Sorry I havent been on very often lately. Been so very busy.

Blessings and Warm Thoughts All
