2 things come to mind:
1 - I would appreciate if you would be up front about the link you posted being a Jehovah Witness site. Not saying that's good or bad, but again, just pls be up front about it.
2 - I respectfully disagree with the following comments:
"I don't count on any huiman being coming up with a lasting solution to these problems" (about cancer etc).
Because-? Human beings have already come up with a lasting solution to many medical problems and diseases; logically, then, we are likely to come up with at least some for cancer, sooner or later.
"There is nothing we can do about the pain and agony in our hearts..."
?? There is plenty we can do. In fact, this site is a great example of one of the ways - by sharing, venting, supporting each other.
(paraphrased) "They are looking for treatments, not cures, so they can make more money..."
aka the "Big Pharmacy Conspiracy" - goodness knows our hospitals etc are very (VERY) far from perfect, but like most conspiracy theories, there is little to no evidence to back this one. If that were true, then why did we come up with the cures we have to date (for polio, smallpox, the list goes on and on)? In fact, if someone comes up for a cure for ANY cancer, they would make HUGE amounts of money, so if we say "all they care about is money," there's a big incentive to find a cure right there.
I regret if any offense was taken as none was intended; just my opinion
Thanks Dennis, no worries. In response to your replies:
- we weren't talking about "sickness and death" in general, but specifically cancer; that was where my comments were directed. And my "conspiracy theory" comment was about your reference to them or hospitals/etc purposely not wanting a cure because they just want to make money.
- I never referred to "the pain in ones heart having no solution." Pls re-read your original comment that I quoted: you said "There is nothing we can do about the pain and agony in our hearts..." Which I felt it important to point out is untrue, as someone might read that and feel even more powerless and without hope, when they have no cause to because there are many things they can do to help themselves get through this difficult journey. I also never implied that " time and action can heal all wounds," which I totally agree with you is also untrue.
- As to the link, why does it matter? Because your link isn't simply a link to some general grief support; it's very religiously oriented. Failing to say so up front is dishonest by omission, even if unintentional. People come here for general grief support and with widely varying religious views; few if any care to be "preached to." Would you like it if you came here looking for support and someone pointed you to a site...then when you got to it, it turned out to be an Islam site spouting things from the Koran? Or was an atheist site touting their views? See where I'm coming from on that?
Again I realize you mean well, I'm not saying the links are "bad" by any means, and I regret any offense. Just some things to consider...
