Silence is Golden

Enjoyed seeing Waialua Falls featured in Jurrasic World that past week.

My absence from the blog, and my silence on Facebook stem from trying to survive the comments for and against all the things happening on the news. Maybe it's my upbringing in the 60's or my own personality but I just don't respond well to pronouncements about being on my side or the wrong side of an issue. Or those decrying the end of civilization as we know it.

I do believe as I continue to listen and study that the fundamentalist mindset in religions of anykind can be destructive. So I am just listening with many winces, and trying to walk in love, grace, mercy, compassion, and patience as I approach my 65th birthday on July 13. Still proud to be an American and still love my faith.

I resonate with your thoughts Don. I FB posted a 2 minute clip from the president's eulogy in Charleston and wound up taking it down because of the negative comments and borderline nastiness.
