Dear Lorraine, Thank-you for what you are offering to this world!It can be disheartening, and frustrating to say the least when going up a brick wall or worse yet being retaliated against,in the name of greed.
I do not know if this is a consolation but the beauty of integrity is that it can not be bought.
The beauty of true inner wealth and power can not be attained through outward means of coercion.
A friend of mine taught in Japan. There she said that many exemplified a beautiful quality.The quality of dignity. She said that unlike respect which can be taken away or given, dignity, comes from within.
I pray that you may be able to live honorably....May you hold great ones that have been castrated as your example....Nelson Mandela, Ghandi, Jesus Christ.....May you not be engulfed with bitterness but filled with the light of humble rightousness. Many blessings to you, Penelope
