There is a plethora of convention photos on my Instagram this morning. (A lot of my JW friends have forgotten I'm on their followers list)
Smiling faces standing next to convention posters with comments like 'Nope, I'm not giving up. I'll never give up' all hashtagged to death with #nevergiveup #bestlifeever etc
They are all fairly young people, 40ish and under. They weren't around for 1975 and most of them have not had one obstacle in their lives to overcome. I'm wondering what they'll feel like in 20/30 years when the end hasn't come and they are scraping by. I was them once...I thought the end was imminent. I didn't worry about tomorrow. You give up everything and then they tell you it was your fault you did that and NOW the end is imminent and so the cycle goes on, wasting the lives of generation after generation. This religion is cruel.
What post convention reactions have you had among family and friends?
