After a lot of switching back and forth between nameservers, I think I have finally gotten it right. I imported and uploaded all of the files. I have gotten my fanlistings back up and working once more. I think I am going to revamp them and the collective itself in the near future as well. I do still need to bring Lilac Heart back up. That will have to wait for another day however.
At this time, I would like to give a personal thank you to Misaki of Three-Words host for helping me with so much. She worked with me so much. It was a huge help and such a relief. I won’t go into all of the details. I’m just going to say that my first impression of her and her hosting, is a good one. Whenever I contact her, I never feel like a bother. I feel like she is happy to help me with anything, no matter what it may be. I have only been with her for a very short amount of time, but I am loving it so far and have nothing but good things to say!
I have also put up a Christmas/holiday theme for the site. It’s kind of basic, I think. I’m not sure how much I really like it. Its almost Christmas though, so it was past time for a holiday design to be put up. I would love come commentary on it.
Can I bring up now the shooting in Connecticut that happened a few days ago? I’ve only just really started to learn about it and what happened. Its heart wrenching. I don’t know any of the families, obviously, but I can just imagine what they’re going through. It must be so hard.
As soon as I really started to hear more about it, I ran to look up more information. I have read every single article that I could find on this horrific event. Its devastating. I cry at every thought and post I read about it. Those poor children. Having lost a child of my own, I know how crushing it can be. That’s nothing compared to having your son or daughter stolen from you though.
You send a child to school and you expect them to be safe. They’re not supposed to be murdered there. There isn’t supposed to be wild and crazy gunman after children. The reality is though, there are hundreds of thousands of these people all over the world. They could be in our own backyards. As hard as it seems, this kind of thing could happen to any one of us, at any time, any where. It’s terrible that this is the reality of our world.
I think that its time for a change, across all countries and nations. Mental health is becoming a serious problem that needs to be addressed by all world leaders. Gun control could help, but if someone really desires to kill another, they will find a way to do it. Drugs are illegal in some countries, yet people use them every day. Guns will be the same, no matter what bans are put in place.
The only way to really go for the problem, is to go at it from the starting point. That point, is the mental health. It takes a sick, sick person to hurt innocent children. To hurt anyone. These people who are doing these terrible things need to be stopped. We need to prevent it from happening, by getting these people help. Mental health care needs to be easier to receive. I hope that the USA makes a change in this direction. Guns don’t kill people, they can’t go off by themselves. People kill people. Its hard to accept for some of us, but we need to face the reality of the situation. There’s no more time to wait or for games. Enough lives have been lost.
So please, take a moment of your time to remember the victims. Send them your prayers and help and whatever else you can offer. Send them your love and support during this hard time. They need it.
