There is a sacredness in tears...
They are not the mark of weakness...
But of Power.
They are messengers of overwhelming grief..
And Unspeakable Love.
My Dear Friends:
I cannot begin to understand the anguish this "church" has caused you. I can only say that I share in that anguish as well.
We must be strong. We must have faith. We must do everything we can to
get our loved ones out of there. We must never stop trying.
If our family members have forsaken us, we must forgive them, for it is
the influence of fear and control of their environment that dictates
their feelings for us.
Despite their words and actions, they need our help. Once out, they will still need our help.
I can only ask and beg to each of you to pray or get counseled or
whatever it takes to prevent our collective grief and to some, justifiable anger, from escalating to dangerous acts and levels. It is
the elephant in the room no one has talked about, yet.
I feel I must address this.
While Jim Jones, David Koresh, and other cults demise has been self
inflicted, no one from outside these groups has taken upon themselves to
commit a crime in the name of good of others. So, we will not be the
first. We cannot condone violence. We cannot tolerate violence. We
cannot consider violence. We cannot commit violence. We will not commit violence.
We must stay strong. We must remain vigilant. We must be pro active. We must pray. We must never give up hope.
It is my considered opinion that time spent in organizing groups or a
group would be better spent in researching, making calls, praying,
seeking help and thus make more of a difference than having meetings and
assigning tasks. I believe we are better motivated when totally focused
with one task. We can gather and rejoice later, either here or up
WW has pointed out areas where WOFF member and non WOFF member alike,
within this series of blogs, where you can turn to for help. Look for

WW believes that WOFF is short in compliance in areas previously covered
and all it would take is one report, one complaint, one phone call, one
letter.....ONE BLOG....to bring WOFF to accountability.
Truth is our weapon. It is clean. It is Right. It is the only thing we need besides prayer and hope.
The solution is out there. Hopefully, you can use your talent and skills
this way to constructively, lawfully, apply accordingly.
Our loved ones are more than worth it.
And if you fear they may never speak to you again, it would have been
worth it to try. For it would be best to try and lose them than not do
anything and certainly lose them.
Fear is not an option. We cannot put fear in the way of reuniting with
our loved ones. That is simply not a luxury we can afford.
WW is determined. Are you? WW appeals to you to get moving.
WOFF is foolish to think that those of us in the outside will fail at forcing their accountability.
