    @Hopscotch: As usual you are so sweet. Thank you for the nice comments and it was also great to have met you. There are so many like us, it's comforting to know that we are not alone. Talking and sharing with others help us to affirm that we are not the ones with the problem. Say hi to your son! He's so luck to be out! Wishing you the best as well. Enjoying some cool obsedian rocks by the way. Positive energy your way!

    @palmtree: I can only aspire to post as much as you do. Thanks for the compliments as well. I'm sure we're all making a difference, helping those that are still trapped. A minute of silence for them. I have been logging off by the way, getting a life little by little. Unfortunately, we always need some support since we still deal with crazy JW people.

    @moshe: They want to discredit and demonize anyone who leaves the cult. It serves as a warning to others that leaving gracefully is not allowed, specially if you are an elder. They want to ostracize cult members from society, keep them in the blind and ignorant, keep them enslaved as it is a source of funding and free work for them.

    Wow, how far you and your family have come! Thank you for sharing your story...I'm sure many will relate to the experience, and hope any lurkers see how it can be done no matter how deeply entrenched one may be in the org.

    It's been a pleasure to know you and your sweet wife. I thnk about your kids they have the opportunity to do and be whatever they want. I'm happy for all the kids I know that can finally "eat the cake!!!"

    I look forward to many more visits to come....including next week!!! (Can't wait for that one! ) xx
