The Most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths.

Beautiful people do not just happen. - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Dear Friends on Locals, know of my thanksgiving for all of you I have gotten to know through the interactions of posts, comments and various forms of conversation that this medium affords. Thank you for the communities we have shared, the laughs at memes and funny posts or comments, the links to articles on a variety of topics, the freedom to share opinions without the toxicity of backlash. Thank you for sharing your passion in music, art, writing, food, pets and nature. My life is all the richer for so many things I would have missed just being on my path. Thank you for so many moments of insight, broadening of perspective and at times very human vulnerability. Thank you to the Content Creators for the being the proverbial porch lights that have drawn all of these moths to the flame and for creating spaces of humanity that have opened the door to conversations, comradery and friendship. Happy Thanksgiving Digital Friends, Refugees, Phamily, and Triggeratti! Thank you Early Birds, Dawn Patrol, and Fascinating People! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
