"Reasoning based upon observation is not very sound..." James "kimo" Rosen' (Cosmic Tuesdays)

Welcome back  me! That's me (James "Kimo" Rosen) back in Alaska in 1983 along the Rocky River's edge, six silver salmon in 15 minutes!
My sister Nancy (coos) visiting me in Alaska in 1993, 6 months before she left this earth...
 If you enjoy dakinetalk please post it on your favorite social networking site, forward it to friends and talk story about it to your friends and family,,!

In a small town island atmosphere, people seem to know things about you before you yourself know.

My sister was dying of bladder cancer at age 45 back in 1993, she looked much younger than her 45 years and was physically in shape, she wore wigs, since she had lost her hair to chemotherapy. My sister was very weak and could barely get out of bed, however once she was out and about in public she put on an act, she smiled, dressed in beautiful styled clothes and always had a smile and kind word although she was in constant distress.

There was an incident where she drove up to a shopping center and proceeded to park in a disabled parking space, since she had a disabled permit from her city. There was a group of people standing yelling at her and calling her names because they thought she didn't belong there because she looked nice, that is she didn't look sick, if they only knew... My sister passed away 3 months later.

People are constantly accused of things by people who don't know them personally because some people feel they know what's happening in that persons life by the coconut wireless and gossip. Please remember to not make accusations against others just by hearsay or from what you hear during a talk story session with your friends.

Remember the theory, "reasoning's based upon observations are not very sound." To paraphrase, please don't gossip and if you do be prepared for the consequences because what goes around comes around and then some.
Rest in peace my sister, I Love you...

via Facebook;"If you've ever had a chance to check out any of my websites, you'll notice that, in addition to my business providing publishing services, I have worked closely with the disabled community for almost 40 years.

Your reminder is poignant, inspiring and a very important reminder that not all disabilities are visibly apparent!"
