  • Is there really a reason that we have to insult people if we disagree with their opinion or the opinion of others? Even if we feel that we are right and they are wrong? Maybe they are right and we are wrong. Point is, can’t we just all get along? Lightning stuck…it simmered.. it caused a fire…could’nt get to it due to marsh…many people way worried…firefighters, bless them! Lets be strong and stand together instead of trying to tear each other apart. Is that too much to ask?
