Response to A HERETIC I AM (Reply #24)

36. That was an absolutely wonderful read.

And I truly could picture DU as a town, the kind you never want to stray too far from. You always want to know the locals, the best place to hang out. You call it home.

I've never found another place like this. I don't bother looking anymore. This is home.

I'm not feeling well, and it finally stopped raining long enough for me to go outside and take a walk. And while I was on that walk, I was thinking of how lucky we all are to have each other to turn to, especially right now.

I live alone. I have no family. They have all passed away. Yet I never feel alone, because I know everyone is here.

I can come on here and participate as much as I want. I can read and educate myself. I can laugh, I can cry, I learn. This is home.

Three guys came up with a wonderful idea and turned it into a reality. I wandered in here in 2004, and I've never left. DU educates, it opens our minds and our hearts. It takes us on trips to places we never thought we could see, through the eyes of those who live in different countries.

We support each other through the tragedies of life. And we celebrate each other's good fortunes.

We are the luckiest group of people on the internet.
This is home.
