Thank you very much. I know that what I read is lets say a little bit outdated or to much focused on the past. But without past, there is no future. Both Lists help.

I am going to like you like Wardancer for your posts and that very much. I have learned new ways of looking on you and your people. We live indeed in 2017 not in 1917 or 1817. And I will never fully understand because it can not be learned through internet and reading books. But may be, I can learn a little bit more.

Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace.
