Your words Daryl, are immediate,
Definitely makes me want to be in the "present", so I can take advantage of every moment, er, not EVERY moment, but the ones I can see without obsessing. The world sees them as survivors, and look up to them for the camaraderie, and their unflinching spirit.
Then too, they are fighting the "man", the oppressive and uncaring business, so there is a new need to survive and the world will tune into that as well.
Interesting similarities to our cause, that we are surviving, and there is interest in our story. How do we get the world's attention? Whether we are thrust into the light due to accomplishment or surviving, will we be ready for the world's attention? How are we preparing for that now?
InsideTheWall, claustrophobic is JUST the word I was searching for, yikes! Yet, there is no doubt they survived the physical part of the experience, now to the fame side, and the "acting out".
I would say as survivors, most in MaleSurvivor,(like I am qualified to say that, however...) have been through the physical part of the trauma, and are contending with opening themselves up to hundreds, even thousands here in MS, through the forums, chat and PM's. As we search for survivors, and as we are being rescued, what are our "hoops"?
