That wild child
Kamryn hitting out the beat
are we ever glad he
the next Michael Jordon!
I am hoping you are finding a
Joey Graff Desk to dance on
(even if it belongs to someone else)
GOOD MORNING MONDAY!
wELL the latest updates on
the Lily The Black Bear Facebook pages
by whoever is now writing those things
[I feel certain they are not penned by
Lynn Rogers or Sue Mansfield for a long time now]
has let over 100 thousand fans know
they are now awaiting confirmation
HOPE was shot by a hunter.
they now await that confirmation
MN DNR (Department of Natural Resources).
the sadness, the prayers, the candles
are filling the pages there.
have folks on edge
someone even created an
“uncensored page called LTBB”
oh my did it cause opinions and upset
So much so that
Sue Mansfield herself posted several times
finally made the statement that
“yes we do believe HOPE is dead“
although that had never been said
outright previously by her.
The person that created that uncensored page
is catching hell from folks
freedom of speech lives large in our country
other pages have cropped up before;
one had to go “private and closed”
it was so inflammatory!
folks there just fussed and cussed
and said terrible things about others
accusing and talking “scat”
it is a page that continues to do well
each feeling free to express their rights under
the ole’ constitution
yet they have closed their group
from the eyes of others to see what they have to say or to
share opinions on.
But this new “uncensored LTBB page”
it is open for the world to comment on
have they ever
they are mostly sharing their opinions
for the person who opened it to begin with!
they are not happy
about the right to share opinions it seems
it seems that this page has inflamed many.
Opinions are interesting to watch
to read when emotions
feelings are involved.
When grief is raw
people try to sort things out
try to figure out if they are being told the truth
honor and integrity
when there are so many players involved.
all that can happen when there are only two people involved!
Remember that last argument or misunderstanding you had with a friend
did it really matter in 6 months
In the larger scope of things
when we sort back or look back
do those “knee jerk reactions”
in the grand scheme of things?
we would do well to learn from
4 leggeds, the winged ones
in the case of
a North American Black Bear named
a little one that was seen being born in a den
out there in Ely MN
on a live web cam
by thousands across the world…
you can only imagine the
opinions now flying in cyber space
that are now filling the
those who sit around the computer, burn up the phone lines and share a cup of coffee with others
wait for validation or confirmation!
The news of this
North American Black Bear
has now made the media
hunters have chimed in
those who are against hunting as well.
There is understanding
a want for more
Brains are firing and the fireworks are flaring… across the world with each beat of the heart in the past days of perceived threat of loss….
It has brought with it: togetherness, anger, denial, bargaining, ugliness, deceit, opinions (some of which are just remarkable), and ohhh so much more!
LILY and HOPE
back in the day of splendor and awe
On the latest update
posted by who knows who
we were told that the
Moderators who have maintained order on the page had resigned
they were thanked for their time there.
It was no more than a line or two…
Those folks (whoever they were) dedicated probably 19 hours a day to keeping the page clean and safe from emotional eruptions
kept the researchers out of the
the press from seeing some of the
“rawness” secondary to heightened opinions and emotions of the
ability to watch the wild from a distance as folks put those human emotions on
Wild Bears in the Woods!
I think those moderators have been gone for several days now,
as the things that have been allowed on that facebook page
probably would have been not so much allowed over the last weekend
and the NABC and researchers and press not seen some of what was shown there!
It would have probably been better had those opinions not been thrown out into
that is but one opinion in the land of many.
folks in this state of upset over a beautiful
North American Black Bear
that weighed about 120 pounds
who wandered into a
of a hunter
“legal game” in the state of MN.
Lynn Rogers has been in contact with this person about Lily, HOPE and Faith
the person did answer emails about seeing them at that bait stand,
about not shooting the collared bear and her cubs,
but when asked if that person
SHOT AND KILLED HOPE
there has been no further reply
to that email.
Sorta answered itself I am thinking.
the harsh reality is
HOPE was NOT wearing a collar, was NOT ribboned, did NOT have ear tags
that identified her as
research bear to anyone.
Opinions of hunters
just about anything you can imagine
will be on the table and in the air
in the day and the days ahead.
Opinions will fly
including the character of each other
and those that are not known with exception of their words, and their emotions.
Folks will be spoken to harshly in one entry and one breath
while embraced in the next
those words (names of the bears)
will be written and read more times than we can count.
Prayers will be said, will be written, will be shared… candles will be lit across the world
for a beautiful North American Black Bear.
We all will wonder
some will still wonder what and where is the
North American Black Bear named Donna that went missing and that no one is speaking of
where are her cubs now.
take a breath,
walk away from that which gets your heart racing and pulse going strong…
Embrace beauty and memories that sustain
preserve your dignity and honor
in all ways
on dreary and most remarkable days!
As for that Lily page on Facebook?
Oh boy is it hopping with
opinions, with photographs
We will hear from new Moderators,
some will come on my “fan page of Facebook”
as will some fans
one will say simply
“I am a PHD WITH NO SOCIAL GRACE”
that will be her opinion
I will continue to keep it real
as I ask the question,
Integrity and honor and honesty gone friends?
Folks deserve that when they invest time, emotions, money, dedication to causes, to events, to life…
The can handle anything
they know WHAT it is they are dealing with.
Rather than “skirt an issue”, let people know
the reality as you know it…
That is the
Opinion that I share with you on
I wish you enough…
the fire is burning, its embers are hot…
the sage is filling the air, with thoughts on the wind to all and
HOPE that all will find the strength that is needed to move through the day and memories that will sustain.
Walk In Beauty,
