Just discovered this thread. And so glad I did. Haven't read both part but just skipped around. You guys are amazing. I am sitting here with tears streaming down my face. This is the kind of warmth and positive support and cameraderie that I have longed for all my life. Maybe it is "only" online but the love is coming through loud and clear. Thanks to you all for this. I am actually feeling emotion intensely and it is a good thing - and very unfamiliar.
(And a STANDING OVATION to all who post here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
