Itís quite alright, no apology necessary. Iím with you, I donít understand why so many men, at least that I know, have a slap on the back, I'm better than everybody else, macho man attitude. On the other hand, most women that I know have more compassion for other people. They seem to feel more for other people, and have more insight into other peopleís problems. I donít think that feeling another personís pain and suffering and wanting to help makes me any less of a person. I feel that compassion is universal for both women and men, or at least it should be. But then, what do I know? And I really do enjoy reading your posts. Iím learning a lot from you and everyone, and it gives me hope.
