October 8, 2015, Prescott- I opted to attend a monthly meeting of the American Legion, this evening, rather than go to another gathering. As it happened, that was not the best use of my time. Although I will remain a member of the Legion, and the local post, so as to maintain ties with trusted friends, circumstances have changed. I am not a member of the inner circle, and so when trying to humbly offer a correction at tonight’s meeting, I was upbraided. Though my concern was addressed a short time later, it was made clear that “he”, meaning me, was regarded as a nuisance by the leadership.
Thus, tonight’s was my last meeting. Disorganization is something through which any of us ought to be able to work, but when the disorganized are arrogant and full of themselves, to protest is folly. I find it is far more advantageous for me to use my time towards the building of a solid community foundation. The alternatives on Thursday night are Baha’i activities and encouraging one or both of the secular friends to whom I alluded in the last post.
There were few people at tonight’s meeting. From here on, there will be one less.
