Maybe we just need a newer Underground Railroad

I don't pray but tonight I wish I knew how. I hope I don't have to write the rest of this post.

You know today's world is a fucked up place when the Underground Railroad starts looking like the only way to get things done.

Please please please send hope.

Greetings from the UK, I appreciate you are a lady on a mission with a sense of purpose seldom seen in the modern world, your writing style and sense of self has drawn me to the conclusion that you could, if you wish, join me in a blog project. My aim is to create a culturally diverse ‘around the world in 80 blogs’, or ‘virtual vacation’ type blog, uniting like minded individuals and enlightening the World Wide Web (and ourselves) in the process. I am up to about 40 interested bloggers and would be bloggers from as far apart as Fiji, Florida, Australia, California, Samoa, New Zealand etc, the project is currently parked whilst I try and generate my network of friends. If you would like to know more, or for any reason, drop me a line on my blog or at andy.moreton@sky.com. Many thanks, Andy.

I believe in the Underground Railroad! Sure was effective but the issues needed a public voice too. No regrets. JAH will provide!

Prayer is not ritual it is conversation between you and the the great hope that lies beyond. It is that conversation we never seem to have when times are good and always seem to need at the darkest hour. As the tempest stirs about you keep in mind. There is justice in the universe and small victories are still victories. True faith of any kind or religious belief can move mountains. Sometimes it just isn't on our timeline, but it happens. Hang in there Jules. I know you can't do everything, but you are trying your hardest. Just keep shining your light and in the end things will work out even if it seems like right now it's all a disaster.

how did the apt hunt come along?

I will pray FOR you.

And... you don't have to know how to pray. You just do it. You just talk. You just turn it over. You can say and ask anything you want. There isn't a right or wrong. Prayer can mature. But a conversation with a higher power can't be "wrong."

It's been, what a few weeks? A month? It feels like longer to me. I'm sure it does to you as well. This frustration, although unpleasant, holds the catalyst for change. Hang in there sweetheart.

You know how to pray. Is there an attorney willing to help out gratuite? Or, maybe a newspaper reporter? Sounds like things have gotten VERY serious. I am praying you have the energy to get through whatever is going on, and have enough left over for yourself.

Wow, my word verification is cryned :(

whats been happening here!?!

oh my. dear tangobaby.

I will email some support and help.

You are an angel...really:) Don't give up...

I'm sorry i've been away.

Char May 6, 2009 at 7:19 AM  

sorry honey - I will send as many good thoughts as I can.

You know, prayer changes things..

Tangobaby, take a deep breath and accept what is... Listen, K and her children will be taken care of..trust me! Believe that! Know that! and watch it come to pass! Just when things seem like it's not going well, good comes out of it! Don't think your way through this.. feel your way.

You weren't just happen to be walking down the street and turned around after passing Ms. K and her children to get this far in reaching out for help to just have opportunity slammed tight.. Trust me! You were attracted to this for a fullfillment of some type and she was to you!

So, again, try to breathe deeply, accept and know that all is good now and will be better regardless of what the perception is by all! Ms. K had the strength to leave and she will have the strength to fight for her family. Sorry to leave such a long comment...

Sending support, love, and positive energy your way, always! Please if there is anything further that I can do from GA, let me know. I'm on it.

P.S. Always bring peace to any situation. They will either succumb to it or they will leave.
