Perhaps, in ones browsing and writing on ATS, one becomes a little....well, sad, or disheartened. This is understandable.
There are many things in this world that make it all to easy to forget how beautiful the world, and those who inhabit it, really are.
But check this out, please;
I am sharing this, because in some way it speaks to what Im trying to say.
To that end I say this;
Do not grow bitter; it serves only the interests of hate.
Do not grow cold; you may find warmth in the company of others.

*Edit*; I would also like to put forth the idea for a new forum, one which shines light on the good news, and the good in people. There is a lot of
doom and gloom out there, and there is no real reason why we cant help each other feel a little happier about the world! A good news section of the
website would not only facilitate good intentions as well as serving to balance out all the doom and gloom, but it may actually serve to better the
mental health of ATSers!
