    I asked my mother today, who is in her late

    80's, if she ever thought that she would ever

    get this old and see 2010 on this side of the

    Great Tribulation? She had a very sad look

    in her eyes and they teared up and said "No."

    She said that when she was studing to come into

    the truth in the late 1950's that she was

    told then that the end was close and that her

    son would not even graduate from high school.

    (PS: I graduated in the mid 1960's) She

    has lived the last 55 years of her life dreaming

    of the future while ignoring the present. She

    gave up living her life in the present for a life

    in Paradise. Now at her age she can not say

    that she was wrong to believe what she does

    because that would be admitting that she

    believed in a lie.

    Another life wasted on a fantasy.

    So sad. Neglected minds, neglected dreams, wasted energies, goals quashed, never experiencing life to the fullest, dead on the vine and shrivelled.

    She may not admit it...but deep down inside...she probably knows. Soooooo sad.

    So much for being the happiest people on Earth.

    On one of the rare occasions I was able to talk to my dad over the year, I asked him.."But what if you are wrong?" He said, "I am NOT wrong, I can't be wrong, It's impossible. That would mean I wasted 40 yrs of my life. I am NOT wrong."

    So..there's no "What ifs?"

    How sad is that. And you know even if in their hearts they know it was a lie...they cling to the end because "what if???" Its like playing that one armed bandit in Vegas. You put all your money into it because its "due" to pay off. And it sucks your life your time and your money out of you and you are terrified to leave it because you have invested everything into it. And for nothing.

    Even staying and WASTING 13 years of my life was horrifying to find out. I feel so bad for her and the millions like her.

    The Witchtower Babel and Trick Society have

    blood on their hands and are responsible for the

    dumbing down of millions of people who check

    in their brains outside the KH before they go

    thru the doors and then they forget to pick them

    up when they go home.
