You speak for yourself, I have a certificate from my Psychiatrist saying I am perfectly sane! And it cost me a lot of money to get him to write that :lol:


But seriously this shocker is rolling on and on down here http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/africa/707 ... ing-a-lion , I can't help get the feeling that political mileage is being made out of this, as well as the media having a field day.

ThreeWillows cartoon is an excellent portrayal of reality, alas.

Check this out for insanity:

http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/africa/70753570/goldplated-cecil-the-lion-memorial-cellphones-selling-for-3700

No gold plated phones for MKs, probably won't even get the phone answered at Mission Control.

Luckily the current batch of returning MKs are all very happy and have enjoyed their mission field childhoods, right?

No! In a newsletter from the ranks of NTM,


Quote:
.-“I came with a broken heart and deep wounds. Through sharing my story, the sessions, concealing, and support - I am now on a path of healing and am learning to accept God’s love as I am.”

-“I was able to tell people things I had never voiced before. Those things don’t have the same kind of hold on me anymore. I don’t feel like I have to hid certain aspects of myself anymore.”

-“I feel a lot more in tune with my emotions and thoughts that I’m having for transition. I am much more aware of what I’m going through …and while I know transitions are hard… I feel a lot more prepared of what will happen.”

-“The biggest thing for me was admitting all of the pain and hurt from the past and being willing to face it. To know that its ok to question and struggle and to have people to comfort and uphold me through it which was so incredibly vital.”


And that is 2015

This is depressing to me.

Nothing's better? Even now, after all these years?

Teenaged high school graduates still hold broken hearts, deep wounds, secrets, pain, hurts and struggles?

Deep sigh for my fellow MKs, coming along 50 years behind me ...

:(

Be not depressed. For now we have the internet and we have Fanda Eagles. No more wandering in the wilderness for 40 years waiting for it to be invented. No, no. Now the modern MK can find the meaning of post NTM life, companionship and support at the click of a button, for lo we are here always :D

The wisdom of Sages can be found on these Pages
For MKs who wander into the world
No need to be depressed, get it all off the chest
Log into FE.com and let thy problems be unfurled

Imagine if airlines refused to carry child sex offenders. It is a long walk home from South America . . .
