I found this interesting

I read about this group on-line.  The similarities were so bizarre and disturbing to me I almost went into shock!  This group only validates my belief that all humans seek something better than themselves.  The article was stamped by CNN and the group hails from Florida.

They asked,  If you thought you had less than three perfectly healthy months to live, what would you do?  These are the options offered,
1, Would you travel?
2, Spend time with loved ones?
3, Appreciate the joy life has given you?
Would you ditch your kids and grand-kids, join strangers in a caravan of RVs and travel the country warning people about the end of the world?

Interesting choices!  Apparently the alternative option is not so alien to these folks.

I think what they’re saying is kind of foolish because we’ve all heard things like this said before.  End of the World, Doomsday Cometh, predictions of Armageddon, etcetera.  While their timing is suspect to me, it is nevertheless quite uncanny.  Their story, and the web page which tells their story, is rather extensive but contains a curious justification that sounds exactly like the mind set we trans-sexual people have been forced to live with and grow through our entire lives!

While, these “Ambassadors”freely walked away from work, families and communities in places like California, Kansas, Utah and New Jersey, trans-persons may have come from those exact same places but they didn’t have those exact options.  While these Ambassadors gave away cars, pets, music collections and more to relatives, friends and neighbors, many trans-persons, again, simply didn’t have those options.

Some of us, literally, had to run away in order to survive.  No doubt we all have unique stories to tell.  No one was listening to us at home and, of those who did, they seemed to be against us anyway!  These Ambassadors simply kicked many items to the curb and left many more items in their homes until, of course, they're claimed by someone else.  Does any of this sound eerily familiar?  On a much smaller scale it does to me!

Maybe it’s time for us to begin thinking we’ve been chosen.  We, like so many others, simply have to pay an exacting price to make it all happen and we all pay that price in one way or another!  Whomever we’ve been chosen by, these Ambassadors claim God, we need to accept the fact that he, or she, is not always nice.  Just like God.

  1. You said I was negative. So I did a positive piece. It didn't turn out so well. Most people would say "sorry", right about now. As you might have gathered in your reading of my blog, I'm not "most people".
