To read some of what has been said in this forum recently, one might think we are racist, hateful and constantly ear bashing each other. If someone just dropped here from another planet and walked around town, they would never really know. As I go about my business, taking kids to school, going to basketball games, baseball tryouts, swimming pools, etc. etc., I meet the nicest people, all helpful, willing to volunteer at school, drive car pools, bring snacks, etc. I allow my kids to go to friends homes for playdates, have their friends come here, and so on and so forth. We really are nice people.
Maybe underneath we do have opinions we would rather keep to ourselves. Maybe that is why the majority of us would remain anonymous in this forum. Maybe we are scared of being "found out". I can only say that for those of us reading this forum on a regular basis, I am very happy that these opinions are kept to ourselves. It seems that when someone gets annoyed about something they appear to be sitting at this forum constantly and replying to a comment almost instantaneously. So do it here, rather than in a more public arena.
So, to all of us, please continue to be the nice people I meet around town. Yes, have opinions but know when to keep them to yourself and when to air them. This is a great place to live, with great neighbors, and when you come down to it, we are all here together making it so. Keep up the good work. I like being a Palo Altan.
