Re: Aikido, My Way

sweet. I am in Florida, in a hotel, bored, and I like to "fight"!

Where are you Anthony? I will be here for another week and a half! Destin/Fort Walton Beach area...you close by?

Maybe we could get together and train some! In a good way...then at least we'd know how "good" we are compared to at least each other!

sounds like we'd have a good time!

Hi Cherrie,

As a black guy growing up in a white neighborhood, who has been stoned, attacked by white and black gangs, who went to a high school were the lunch room was still segregated, who was almost stabbed with a screwdriver in high school (I could go on, but what's the point)...

I don't NOT recognize what someone else may be feeling. What I do say, is that that is not my life NOW...and that we ALL need to get past the past. Otherwise...life just sucks.

'Course, people are perfectly welcome to live a sucky life. It's their dime.

And as Mary said...this is a discussion board...so the statements we make may well be questioned. Nothing at all wrong with that in my book. In fact, I wouldn't come here if that didn't exist.

As to belittling anyone...I don't think anyone here did that. I could be wrong...but I don't think so. Some people belittle themselves with their own behavior. THAT I can't do one darn thing about. Believe me, I've tried.

Ron (I just re-read my posts to this thread...*I* certainly did not belittle anyone)
Thanks for clarifying I did misunderstand the statement. As for belittling it was not your comments specifically. that inspired that statement.
