I was thinking about the various reasons I come to this site and felt the need to espouse some thoughts.
I shied away from this site at first for what now seems some rather silly reasons; as if there were things here I didn't need to know, lol. But I did and do enjoy the scope of topics here, the intelligence, cameraderie and diverse opinions of the posters here. I have much respect for the admin and mods who devote much of their time to ensuring this site functions and is within socially acceptable boundaries. Ditto to all those who have and do research many of the relevant issues to the dub world and have social conscience enough to actively share their knowledge and act upon it. And to those who just care about others here, it's proof of the main reason why I left; that there are good people out there.
It has been twenty years since I left and have come a long way in a lot of ways but still find something quite compelling in reading and sharing stuff with those who know what it was to be a jw. Much to be learned to be sure; it's all about the journey, no?
To those who've welcomed me, shared stuff and extended their virtual friendship here, I say thank you; it means a lot to me. To all who've found their way out of the darkness, I am your "brother", :-)
I don't often get expressive to this extent, so don't expect more of this kinda stuff for some time,...;-)
Just saying is all,....
