This was a hard choice to make. I mean, its easy for them to accuse you of emotional blackmail. Never mind that they use that very tactic themselves, but somehow its alright for them, but on the other side, its a sign of lack of credibility.
The reality is that the reason the issue is so hard is because its so emotional. I know how emotional it is, because people come here in melt-down about it all the time, so that is why I decided to show the "human" side of decision-making, and how hard it can be if you are really alone.
I think one thing that many here don't appreciate the value of, is the fact that as of today, this board exists. The early years that are covered in the books... we were completely alone. We had to stand our ground with no support whatsoever.
Those of you who go to babyfactory . com will know how it feels to be set upon by snarling frothing pro-vaccine rottweillers. Yes, that's an emotive term, but it's true, and I'm not backing off of it at all.
You guys need to value places like this, but realise that (prediction here) they won't be here in the future. The issue is far too important to allow the nose of the camel to become more than that. I predict, and I mean it, that places like this will not be allowed. Therefore, we also need to get out there in the community and form an in real life community, so that when Big Brother shuts down places like this (IF).... we aren't all stranded.
And even if my prediction doesn't come true, that community still needs to be formed anyway, because out there, IRL, is where the real world is, and its about that world out there, that I write.
Not this world in here. But.. value this corner of sanity in the cyber world too.
|I'm sure there were times when you wanted to have a normal life and you kept on, I'm glad you did.
I still do want a normal life. I would love to be able to drop this, and just walk off. There are many times I am that close to
frustration, that all I do is
: and it gets no better.
People are by and large sheeple, and even whey you try to open their eyes, more often than not, they have a self-lock on the blinds.
It's only when things turn to custard that the most blind pro-vaccine people start to grow a spine.
You are lucky that you grew one before you needed to Dooldad.
So, what in my experience wakes people up the best? Not SIDS. Because the possibility that vaccines contribute to that, is too much for them to bear, after all, it was "their choice".
However, being arrested for murder, for SBS, is usually enough to wake some people up. Even if they lose the case.
It is sad to me, that some people have to lose a life, and face losing their own freedom, in order to look the issue in the eye.
But even sicker, is a medical profession that takes on the role of relentless"Pusher and Shover"
and compliance demander. They are the people who can make my bp rise high and fast.
|I've always told my wife I feel like someone(God?) has put things in front of me, or guided me to people to hear what they have to say(on the radio, in person, in books).
I believe God puts those things in front of everyone, before they need to make a choice, even in small ways, but that its a choice to see the pointers, to listen to the inside voice. I don't believe that anyone can stand in front of God and honestly say "I never had any gut reservations, or hesitations about vaccinating"
|I know you don't have a clue who I am, and wouldn't now me on the street. Must be strange to have so many people know you and consider you a friend, even though you have never met most of them)
Yes it is, and its daunting. I often walk the streets of somewhere, and someone comes up and says "Oh, hi, remember me? We talked on 14th January 1989, and you must remember"
and I stand there
: wondering which of the thousands of people i've had contact with, this person is.
Thing is, to them, I am one person. People sometimes forget, that I'm one person, but they are a multitude, and that I had trouble enough remembering a few people let alone a multitude.
I try to remember, and also try to treat everyone as a friend, but please don't anyone be offended if sometime we meet in the future, and I haven't a clue who you are.
