But wouldn't you say that's tricky to start pointing fingers at who's more to blame than others? Isnt' that what MV is talking about? And to say I shoulder the blame for staying in longer than I should have, don't forget that I had a husband who would never hear of leaving the F. in any shape or form and in order for me to keep my children together, I had to stay with him. It was either that or loose sight of my kids in the F. that he would insist on staying with him. I couldn't bear that and I'm glad I stuck it out a little longer so that I could leave with nearly all of my children. I thought that was better, in spite of what we had to put up with. I kept them as close to me as possible and paid dearly for it because I had to balk against the present leadership and edicts, like putting your kids in groups (thank you Gary) and all sorts of things. Some things were out of my control, but some things I balked against and then had to be dealt with. I took a lot of heat for it. I don't think I should feel guilty and I'm not going to. that's nice that some SGAs can say, hey Ray, we have no issues with you, but as for others.... Well, just who are those others and why are we standing around waiting for either being forgiven or ripped apart? I think this is what MV is bringing out and I think it's a very good point.
