Let me begin by saying how grateful I am to have stumbled upon this site.
(Although in a blur of clarity, I have forgotten how it was I actually got here)
I will admit, my first impressions of ATS and its members were
stereotypical at best.
Flashbacks of good old Mel Gibson and Jean-Luc Picard...
But I have come to feel a part of this wonderful community,
with your harmonious mix of contributers,
spanning all regions, all backgrounds,
religions, financial status etc etc.
All coming together in the search for truth.
I have been commited to ATS since that first day...
And regardless of whether I agree with every article or viewpoint,
I am marvelled in the diversity of the collective.
This community has led me in directions I would never have concieved.
It has strengthened my character, vitality, and spiritual development.
And for this, I give my thanks to ALL of you,
Registered members and Lurkers alike,
for it is greatly owed!
Expect more from this soul
