    ok... firstly i would like to say this is strictly tangential... meaning it might have only the SLIGHTEST degree of relevance to your situation.... obviously huge issues about memorial can be attached to the fact that your family is so deeply involved in the sponsoring agency......

    a little background regarding what i am to offer: i have spent nearly four years working with survivors of ch!ldhood [email protected] @buse.... i am very aware of trigger words and trigger events, esp for survivors of [email protected] @buse.....

    here is the tangent: in [email protected] @buse, there are crisis periods that revolve around what are termed "call [email protected]".... programmed dates or events or even progressive ages of the survivor that influence their feelings, emotions and/or behaviours... often inducing intense periods of stress and disorganization, out of balance emotional responses to events, [email protected] ideation

    at the very far end of the spectrum ( altho in my mind the WTS is a cult, i am not linking it to RA cults).... anyone indoctrinated in the JWs knows how heavily loaded the date is with all manner of judgment and expectation..... it is THE death knell for a dub to purposefully and with forethought abandon the "faith" to that extent.....so even seeking out to KNOW the date of the memorial is suggestive of a call [email protected] programming.... very very far end of the spectrum but it might have some application

    it might be a huge leap.... but the thought did occur to me when i read your post

    (please please save any outcry regarding SRA .... i am not going to argue its existence, merely relating anecdotally the impact i have seen in the lives of very traumatized people whose belief in it is all that matters to me)
