An American Sentence

A call for a hiatus: blame can’t restore a nation gone awry.


In the spirit of the real issues of this election, the above is my response to the prompt at 3WW.

you're right but change will come and then maybe things can restart to be better

Joyce said...

Amen! The blame game doesn't solve anything. Besides, words are cheap.

During that hiatus many strong minds could come together and bid a change. I for one am looking forward to the new changes. Have a nice night.

An important message there (and I'll try to only comment once on this post, having done so twice on the last one) :-)

I think political agendas throughout the world have gone a bit awry! And yes! The blame game solves nothing. Far better to find ways for change!

well put.

You make an excellent point with this.

Re: your comment on the 3WW blog. I've been participating for almost two years now, and it's still sometimes that way for me. I have chosen in the past few months to sometimes write a story, and sometimes only leave a line or two on the blog. Even when I only leave something short on the blog I try and read everyone's. I know I miss some, but it's an effort I try and make because I was very active in the 3WW community for a long time.

I can tell you that the earlier you comment, the more other people will come read yours. It's not right, but that's the way it goes.

I also recommend saying in your comments that you leave on other posts that you weren't able to post on time, but that yours is now up. Just a suggestion, but I know it's worked in the past for me and for others.

Above all, just be patient I guess. 3WW has been going a long time now (two years next week?), and I know that Bone, who started it, rarely participates himself anymore, whereas before he would write and comment on everyone's. But you have the right idea: to go read, comment and expect the same.

On a happy thought, welcome to 3WW :)

Thank you all.

SO TRUE, Susan.

The blame game totally turns me off! I just want to hear concrete ideas for what that candidate will do. It's called dignity and these people just don't get it!

Jade and Linda,
Thanks for coming by.
