I have only a few regrets and although I've lived on skid row (around the world), was born there in fact and visit more often than you 'assume', I do not ever blame those still there for my few piddly problems. It just never occures to me. You don't know me as well as you think.
Nor do I blame them for problems plaguing this world today. Those who are at fault advertise it to us every day, after all.
Again; WWJD? Good thing I'm not him :-D
To be truthful and contrary to more of your 'assumptions' I lead a very "blessed" life these days and am quite content as this world winds down for me, despite witnessing as much needless strife, despair, turmoil, death, destruction, mayhem and exploitation that few amongst us could stomach.
Still, when my time comes I'm ready to sing my death song, how about you all?
"everyone has a pocketful of preconceived notions" Me too :laugh:
All we have is the words that are written to inflame the former.
Seems there's not even a spark of interest in finding commom ground among this crew. What a waste of good beekeepers :-D
