Joy did what her RW counterparts are incapable of

She didn't make it about her...she made it about how what she did hurt others. And how to use that as teaching point to heal...not divide.

I understand her not wanting to believe she wrote those things 10 years ago, or how they can seem so foreign to her....when I think of things I've said and views I had years ago, I cringe.
And frankly, given the RWNJ habit of dirty tricks, she wouldn't be doing her due diligence if she didn't have her blog investigated for hacking.

But she didn't play the victim, she didn't make it about her and how dare people try to bring her down. She didn't rail against enemies or do the "what about when person X said this"

She didn't back down or give in either.

She used her platform (and knowing as Mr. Capeheart correctly called it...people wanting to see her eviscerated) to talk about others, how words can hurt and the importance of evolving.

We cannot pretend our actions haven't hurt others even as we continue to grow and learn, nor can we judge people solely on their past. We are imperfect...the beauty is we can help and heal each other.

We cannot continue to tear down those on the left, searching for purity..because we will never find it. We need to stand together and help each other when we stumble.

Haven't seen any of her detractors humbly accepting her humble apology. I doubt we will.

4. At this point, I suspect

that some reside at the nexus of where left meets right. Done With concrete thinkers.

10. Hi.

Don't post much. Have been very ill since just before the last election. Slowly improving but have limited use of my left arm now. Life can drag you sometimes.

11. Girl it eventually drags all of us

Sometimes I wonder what's ahead for me in the not so distant future, for as sure as the sun rises something is coming.
Take care and heal sis - good to read that you're recovering. :hugs:

7. That's the hardest part

Why so many here take a certain glee in tearing apart allies, I will never understand.

I am more interested in the journey taken by people who have made mistakes, learned from them and not only moved on but ACTIVELY try to make things better for those who have been marginalized than those people who apparently were born woke.

13. +1000.

 

She apparently committed a "heresy" and some think that she has a burning at the stake coming to her.

They're not going to turn loose of any perceived vindication, no matter how flimsy, to do so.

12. She presented herself as a responsible mature adult.

It is not something that the GOP should try to copy. They are not responsible or mature. They are selfish children.
