Please pray for my family.  We are having some tough times right now and I am in the thick of things.  My stepfather, who can be a very nasty man has caused a lot of trouble for us.  He has been especially hard on my mother who has Bone Marrow cancer.  I had to confront him about these things tonight and the results were none too pleasant.  I felt that, despite any trouble that would result it was important for me to stand up for my mother who has already suffered so much over the past several years and whose health might become worse due to his persistant verbal abuse.

I don't know whats going to happen now between us, but I just couldn't let something like this that I knew was wrong and yet allowed out of fear of starting a  family war continue to go on.  Sometimes I feel guilt for having had to do this, but what other choice do I have at the moment.

Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
