Ab uno disce omnes alterum non laedere. Pulvis et umbra sumus.
From one, learn all, to not wound another. We are dust and shadow.
I was a member of the International Order of Job's Daughters, Bethel #27, in Langford, British Columbia, between 1987 and 1990. During those years, the Bethel lost its membership (members quit, demitted, or resigned), and I was told at the time that it was because of me. (Although I was never told why.) I have explored every other avenue available to me, to gain some answers as to what happened during those years, but I have been rebuffed or put off at every turn.
This journal will chronicle my attempts to get some answers for some very troubling events in my past. On May 4, 2007, comments will be allowed. Twenty years to day after I passed proficiency to gain entrance into a Bethel where I was unwanted, merely because my physical disabilities excluded me from being "the fairest in all the land."
