Dear xxx

Thank you for the apology. I am glad that you called Terry to apologize and that he had the chance to tell you that your story of what happened to my son is very different from the way you described it.

I am not interested in polarizing devotees and ex-devotees. On the contrary I would like to see what you describe as "hate mail" on both sides stop. Berneice, I have never met you because I disconnected from the organization 20 years ago. I don't know if you and I have any mutual interests in our lives to talk about. I do know that we are both mothers of sons and care deeply for our children. I have no idea who you are but I would like to know. I would like to propose that we meet, at least on the telephone, to say hello and share what concerns us both about this unusual phenomena that we are engaged in.Even though we are on what appears to be opposite sides on the camp, I think that we actually have many common concerns.

I gave you my phone number in my last e-mail. I've been told that I am nice and maybe even fun to talk to. ;-)

I guess I'm trying to reach out to you. I'm really wishing you the best in your life and in the midst of all this drama. I too was a "blind" devotee and am still learning about this wondrous thing we call life.

Much love and light to you,
