Home is lost

Chatterbox: Down to Earth

Home is lost

Home is lost

People. I want to make this clear. Now. I have known this place for many, many years. But how I see it is this:

I am a Vetran, and I have finally returned home to my family to find my hometown in flames, gone.

Is this what we want? Why, why do we knock down each other to leaving? Why do we throw pointless insults at each other, ruining our mental clarity? Why?

I miss my old home, friends, family here. Look back at what you all have done. Within the past two weeks, week, days, how many have left us? Too many. Each one gone is another wall pulled down. Stop this madness before it stops us.

What happened to that sanctuary we all could turn to for support? I know many of you were never here when that existed, but some were. Think back to the old times.  

I have been talking to numerous CBers about this situation, trying to make them feel better. It is not your fault. I say to them honestly. Don't leave us, give us another chance. I always plead. But look, we are nowhere still. So please, stop having people write their farewells. Stop tearing down our home.

Now I am all about giving solutions. But what can fix this? We are already so far gone. But listen, listen to this little voice in a giant stadium.

You can fix this. Lay down your weapons, your words. Forget a past that will never be changed. I know, I know it is hard to let go. But as a community, we help each other through the hard times. New members, please give the CB a chance. We are struggling right now. And everyone in these arguments? Look back at what you have done, regret it, apologize, and stop. Just stop.

That is all I have to say. I am giving you all another chance. Now help me help you.

Sorry about that, I was being slightly (way more than slightly) dramatic on the whole thing. But it angers me to see so many people leave and so many people argue. I have always been the person to help everyone I can. And I know there is nothing I can do. But yes, I was over the top in the post. But I still stick by the points that I made.
