Flower Power

    I have a little confession to make! It's one of those "good news, bad news" thingies! Two years ago I discovered two site on the net where exjw's gathered, H20 and PioneerOutreach. I was facinated to find out how many were getting wise to the Jdub propaganda machine so I decided I would plant a flower for each one that came forward to share their story of leaving the Borg. As time progressed, I think somewhere around a year ago, I passed the 100 mark and realized that I had used up all the space I had to plant flowers (annuals) so I began developing areas around the office building and in my front yard where I could plant perennials that didn't have to be replanted each year. Then I made the mistake of finding Simon's world and Support 4 Exjws. Now I have too many to keep track of and the rate of departure is such that I've had to throw up my hands and just dedicate the whole project to those that have "seen the light" rather than one per person.

    So to all of you that have been the cause of the beautification of my neighbohood, I say a hearty "thank you" and be aware that a flower is growing somewhere to celebrate your "coming out".

    "In the garden of thy heart, plant not but the rose of love."
