stepping back onto the soap box....
I think that we are really close to another flame war here... if we keep on
Earlier, as I am catching up on posts, I read that "especially Americans"
think that the UK should just let go... or something to that effect...
Being American, I don't have anywhere enough info to tell you to let go or
not. I haven't lived through anything like the IRA bombings... I don't
understand what it is to be under another country's influence. From what I
had read, it seemed to be lots of English, Irish and Welsh fussing. But
then again... I am new... so who knows where each person was from....
What about the here and now? Fix what you can. Be responsible for your
actions. Help to foster love and understanding. Share your knowledge and
experiences. Only through knowledge can ignorance and fear be combatted.
Start here... teach me... explain to me what has happened in your world.
How did you come to this place?
