The Enemy Within


The rabbi's son goes to live in a neighboring town. When the son returns, his father asks if that town was different.

Yes ,says the son, there they teach you to love your enemy.

The father protests -we teach the same thing he says.

The son replys - Yes, but in this town they teach you to love the enemy within.

We all have our griefs and terrors. We are all broken people who hide behind our masks of composure. In our society we are not able to talk with each other about the things that are most important to us, about the ways our hearts are breaking.

H. Scott Peck, author of The Road Less Traveled

insightful words Tom

i wonder how big a role blogging will play humanizing humanity

will new masks of anonymity allow society to talk with each other about the things that are most important to us, about the ways our hearts are breaking


S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo

This is why I am a CISM peer debriefer for the Police and Fire Depts.

(Critical Incident Stress Management)....no one "talks" enough....so, maybe I can be the "peer" debriefer for AdultFriendFinder? Anyone....come "write" in my email..whatever...I'll.

But wait...diesn't BLOGville already provide this with all the beautiful people in this community? Me thinks "Yes!"

And....remember to "hug" yur inner child, he/she is crying out for attention.....{=}
