    lovededid it

    those who didn't see thru the camouflage
    before this **** sure don't see it
    they know not what you speak

    i'll try to simplify it for them

    you see the pain of the WTC
    well in the hood we've been feeling that pain for years and no one listens

    and somebody does something to you because THEY are either a bully or you did something to them

    think about it

    $$RICH$$,

    I thank you for feeling where I'm coming from. Stepping into someone else's shoes has always been a problem I've had. I don't like to see someone suffering, especially if there's some way to prevent it. My mother tells me often, stop worrying about it so much! Of course, that's easier said then done.:D

    So'ja,

    The camouflage syndrome seems to surround us
    It has different idenities, denial,ignore,dismiss, etc
    I could go on and on.
    If I treat someone badly, what right would I have to get upset, when I am treated the same way? I can only think of one answer, A SELFISH RIGHT! Thanks for the breakdown

    Kitana,

    The truth is so difficult for some of us to see, even when it falls right on top of us. Thanks for the read.
