Well like I say, just got back from the Memorial, have been going most years, but this year I went by chance (knew it was roughly at 7pm at the nearest KH) to my old congregation that I grew up in. I didn't find the "evil" people spoke of here on this forum, or those too stupid to see. All I did see was people I hadn't seen in years, and let me tell you, what lovely people they were. In my job as Ward manager of a busy acute surgical ward I meet lots of people day in day out, I get to see good people and assholes too, its all under the umbrella of the good ol NHS that I work for. I think as a nurse, you develop a good idea of people who are genuine and those who are not. Attending the memorial tonight was an eye opener, so many people, those who've been in the truth for years, and alot of new faces I didn't even recognise were there.
The nicest thing was to have old friends come up and say hello, some squashed my hand tightly, others smiled, some engaged me in conversation, others just gave me a squeeze on my shoulder. All I did meet though said how lovely it was to see me again. I think its ok here on this forum to disagree with JW theology, or understanding of scripture, but, and I say a big BUT!!! Don't try and say that JWs are a bad/evil/mislead, or just trying to rope me back in. They looked a pretty good bunch to me, and I'm not easily fooled by crap. I just wanted you amongst all the negatives here, to know.
