    I was shocked to learn of Kathy’s death. In the past few years I haven’t posted
    much online. I felt that it had become some sort of game…many times fueled
    by too much testosterone! But after Kathy’s death I feel the need to
    get back online if only to keep contact with those who are still putting themselves
    at risk by speaking out against the insanity.

    I left SGI years ago after being outspoken in my criticisms and being warned of
    a possible legal action. And know what the shunning is like. It must be gotten through with our without support. Those friends who stood beside me helped me
    take back my power. After reading that Buddha Jones “conversation”
    where Kathy was sharing pain and the replies (!!) I’m going to come out of lurking
    mode and speak my mind where I want.

    There is life after shunning. Threats are the last resort of cowards. Curses are
    only powerful if one accepts them.

What do you think???
