Fellow WordPress blogger Ahuelon wrote an excellent report about ‘Freedom of Speech’ as it relates to Facebook groups such as Captain Rick Atridim’s ‘World Think Tank’ and ‘Chandler-Gilbert Think Tank’.

Ahuelon, an awarded member of both tanks says “One of the reasons I wrote this blog is because I belief that people in the world are in dire need of learning how to communicate without shouting. When shouting begins fruitful sharing of ideas goes down the drain. The world needs to hear about this brilliant model you have devised. Maybe other groups will read about it and give it a try. Thank you for thinking my story is worth sharing with your audience, and I thank you in advance for this honor.”

I belong to two Think Tanks that work in tandem. I think they are both great models for how free speech can and should work. The tanks were created by a man who had a brilliant vision that is spelled out in headers in both tanks. The one featured here is called Chandler-Gilbert Think Tank, or CGTT for short. The second can be found by searching World Think Tank. Both are on Facebook.

Captain Rick: As I began to read this post from Marty, a fellow WordPress blogger, I wondered who is the ‘friend’ being written about? … but it did not take long before I knew Marty was talking about me. This story captivated me … gave me ‘goose bumps’ and even made me shed several tears of joy. Marty’s ‘words of kindness’ will forever be engraved in my heart as some of the best I have ever received. One never knows what will grow from the seeds that one plants along the road of life. A seed I planted for Marty has grown into a mighty tree. That tree will always be remembered as one of my best accomplishments in life. I am very humbled and grateful. Your friend, Captain Rick Atridim.

A friend’s guidance showed me my current purpose.  Purposes change over a lifetime. God sees the big picture of why we are here on earth, but we only see a chapter at a time as we amble through life.  I am going to tell a story about the past few years  that I faced, wondering what my new purpose would be and how my purpose was right under my nose.  It took a special friend to point me to it.friendship day

Over my seven plus decades I have faced many different chapters with many responsibilities. I grew up, married, had children, took care of a parent until her death, and became a widow.  Each chapter has its own story.  Becoming a widow had a surprising result.  I found I had no idea how to put myself on the front burner.  l felt lost.  I realized I needed to find a meaningful reason…
