I like the thread. Thanx TJ.
I've expressed my gratitude at being raised JW. I was adopted and my upbringing was faaaar better than my half-sibs. I learned a great deal through Theo Min(imal) School, and going door to door. Since I was pulled from school after my sophomore year, it was all the "adult" education I had to rely on.
I believe it is every adults responsibility to rectify their past, good, bad, indifferent, with who they are today and go forward. Keeping what is valuable and what works, until it stops working, and discarding the crap. Onus is an important part of "growing up". Ouch!
When I look at other's crap, I'll keep my own, thank you very much.
Psst: Peace begins with me - pass it on!
