Bemused, Raz and Mls all that you say is very true and I need to remind myself how I felt when I
discovered Fanda Eagles. I sat stunned in front of the screen for the next 4 and a half hours unable to fully comprehend the fact that there were posts being written that depicted my history in the dorm
as an MK. For the first 2 weeks I wandered around in a daze....some sort of shell shock.....disbelief that after all these years I wasn't the only one that suffered. The next 2 weeks I wanted to crawl into
bed and stay there......stop the world I want to hop off for a while so to speak. It was a real effort to stay connected with the world around me for a couple of weeks.

I sent a message to someone on Fanda who seemed to have written my story for me.... as though they saw all that was happening in our dorm. I was terrified but that person was beautiful and their kindness has meant the world to me. Slowly I started on the journey out of the mire and being in contact with fellow eagles has really helped me to stay connected and make the journey traveled thus far.

Yes, it is a journey and we are all at different places and stages....and some days I would love still to snuggle up in bed and stay there. Wouldn't we all?

Am I the only one that feels such raw emotion about the MK issues(I know I'm not)....but is it still a spiritual hangover from NTM that American MK's don't feel able to express disapproval, disgust, anger.........? Or....are we afraid with all thats happened that once we start we won't want to stop.......?

I think you make good points. I think there are bunch of different ways to look at what has happened on fandaeagles, and why some say or don't say everything they might say. I continually reassess my participation because of the feedback I get. Three times I asked that my posts be deleted because I was either making several people uncomfortable or my discussion with one or two was getting a little fierce and I was concerned that I would drive even more people away. On another occasion, I asked that my posts be deleted because of a new policy regarding participation in online forums that my employer instituted.
This forum is not for the faint at heart. If you get on here and say what you think, you can easily get clobbered. Here's an example:

"down and out wrote:
First off I just wonder why OT feels it's his duty to get on the Tambo forum to hump a new leg! Really, what's up with that? Do you really think it's your obligation to cross examine any and all? I agree completely with Tambo Graduate and think we should be concerned with healing...I don't know any other guy who can quote from Marry Poppins verbatum! Your mocking, derisive tone makes me wonder what it must be like for those who have to endure you on a daily basis...sheesh already! I've been waiting a long time to hear from my compatriotas from Tambo...Are you that ornery that you need to run them off?

LOL LOL LOL I think many more would support us here if there was less leg humping and word parsing. I know several who read but will not comment
"

At the end of the day, we are standing at a massive crime scene, trying to show our support for the victims, trying to get the attention of the police, while the criminals stroll casually by, calling us liars, hiring attorneys and using surrogates to post here to distract and divide us. The families of the victims, contrary to nature, stand silently by, showing their support for the criminals while their daughters cry out for justice and solace. It's not a scene conducive to polite conversations around the fireplace, listening to classical music. Instead, it is a very revolting context more appropriate for hand-to-hand combat, expletives galore and youtube videos with country music to pierce the gory carnage.
So, if a 30-year-old with small children or a 50-year-old who has started a good book decides to say little or nothing on this site today, or for the rest of their lives, it is perfectly understandable, even if what they might post could conceivably cause all tribers to be summarily tried and imprisoned for the rest of their lives.

Still another group is just content to be ruled by a far-away queen on a dingy, rainy island.

sorry, copy/pasted the wrong one


As I seem to have strayed on to a Brazilian Post, perhaps I should talk about the beautiful game (soccer for any Australians reading this).
This is a nice team to play with and there are some star players, who play the ball beautifully. Personally I think I'm playing inside outside back (but then what do you expect from someone who comes from a country that is ruled by an elderly lady who resides in a palace in a dingy rainy Island :lol: ). Whereas Mitt Linsanity Santorum seems to play some real fancy footwork on the wing. Others play the ball down the centre.
The point is (oh so there is a point to this monologue on some game invented in a dingy rainy Island, I hear you groan), we actually play a good game as a team, and the team that we seem to be playing against, (Lets call them Perpetrators INC) don't like it when we play well, they don't like losing! And some of their players can get a bit upset with our style of play, but all is fair in love and war, and most things are are fair in the beautiful game, I think, but then I've never been good on the rule book, a hang over from when I was a kid.
Right I've just booted the ball up the field, so someone elses turn. :o

1) sweet hour of prayer
2) don't rock the jukebox
3) Bubba shot the jukebox last night

53% of tribers who did boot camp at Jersey Shore said they identified more with #3

87% of tribers who did boot camp at Durant said they actually shot the jukebox

95% of tribers at NTM homes are unsure if "jukebox" is a word you can use on the internet

And 87% of the NTM trainees out there in Roach, MO, think you don't know how to spell "juice box".

And they've been told never to Google "Fanda Eagles". So they don't.

I remember being confined to my room for weeks on end for merely being present when a child broke the rules. I remember the shame, the guilt. Going days without sleep just laying awake feeling guilty but not know what it was I did wrong. I remember us boys conspiring to murder Frank Parker our dorm dad for what he was doing to little girls. We had it all planned out. After a particular episode I wrote him a letter telling him I was going to cut his head off in his sleep if he went into a certain little girl's room again while she was dressing, and signed my name. I was 9. Lack of passion and courage has never been a problem for me... tact and wisdom... well lets keep praying.

DDML, Sad that a 9 year old has more anger toward a pedophile than grown up missionaries. It is beyond imagination how this didn't get handled at that time. How can NTM even call themselves a Christian organization? Where is the outrage? NTM should have to close down just for what they have allowed. Missionaries serving with NTM should be ashamed of themselves for association with such an organization. I could go on forever about NTM and I wish I had some kind of power to bring this to a conclusion for the victims, it is time for NTM to make this happen. Full stop.

It takes a lot to excite we Europeans about the really important issues....the issues this site addresses case and point.

You know....there were many people in the Bible who expressed their anger about situations, treatment and even Gods perceived lack of interest or attention.

Mediterranean cultures still express their emotions,anger so much more openly than we Europeans. Our cultures have their origins in their roots..Australia, America, NZ..largely settled by those from the very proper, austere and even dull nations in Europe. When they added "religion" to the mix we Europeans just about about destroyed the worlds ability to smile. Sort of...if you were happy you weren't serious enough about your faith(sound familiar?)....misery personified. Give me Pauls New Testament Christians in the Mediterranean any day.

Perhaps we need a lot more passion and a lot less lip service....we Europeans are class acts when it comes to lip service.

My background...Scottish, Irish, Italian and just a touch of English to keep me getting totally out of control.
