    In Honor of those BBers who have yet to let us know that they are safe... lets all pledge to behave ourselves for one week. Starting right now.

    I pledge to not bicker about party differences or my opinion about the president and his actions. I pledge to be the bigger person, and ignore those people who chose to bicker at me, in honor of those who arent able to be here. I promise to be mature, and realize that there are many, many people who have suffered and died this week and there is NOTHING in this life as important or as devastating as the pain those people have suffered. For one week, I will forget that which makes my life seem so tainted, and act amiably towards everyone here, regardless of how I feel towards them.

    To not bicker, stir the pot or condemn my fellow BBers in the hope of keeping our wonderful group together and working towards locating our extended family of virtual friends!

    Thank you for this, RF!

    Its never too late to change the way you approach something Julie. Glad to see you, along with everyone else, realizing that there are more important things to think about today. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Goodnight all. I'm out for the day.

    I pledge to behave myself all week (actually for the remainder of the month), and as a start, go check out the "A tribute to the rescue workers" thread where I just posted a link for an item drive for the rescue workers in NYC. This one only applies to southeast PA, but it's a start.

    I pledge too. Trust me, this is just not the time. I can't even think about riding, let alone showing at a time like this....really makes our "horse show world" seem trivial, eh?

    I'm in too.

    I've only ridden once over the past several weeks and am kind of forcing myself to again tomorrow. (My horse has to stay in work while my trainer is out of town next week and I must get comfortable with him...long story...)

    I took my daughter to ride yesterday and she had a great lesson today. I found myself actually smiling. I have to admit - it felt wonderful. She's at a stage where, unless some disaster strikes someone close to her, she doesn't get what the big deal is. We talk about it when she asks questions after our initial discussion, but I don't dwell on the horror of it all.

    My son is the more silent, but deep, kind of kid. He's 2 1/2 years older than my daughter and I have to admit, I'm kind of scared at how silent he's been. But, based on history with him, I have to believe he'll talk when he's ready.
