    When You Write To An Unknown Audience
    by Bobbette Madonna

    The creation, development and ongoing improvement of your
    own ezine is a true labor of love. It is also a forum for
    your own unique perspective on life. Your readers have their
    own perspective and will sometimes tell you about them.

    As a person of firm beliefs in freedom of speech and
    expression I am not offended by criticism. Sometimes
    valuable lessons are learned by both the offended and the
    writer. Thus, this article.

    Holidays bring out the spirit of sharing values and beliefs
    in me. Can't help it, I'm old fashioned and not politically
    correct. Besides that, it's my ezine. It was a response to
    a Christmas message that prompted this article.

    Email from subscriber:

    Bobbette, I respect your belief. I am a giving person, a
    good person. What you are doing is unconstitutional. I wish
    you and yours all the best. Please do not preach, it shows
    major insecurity.

    To which, I responded

    So, you respect my belief but I am not to express those
    beliefs and I should keep them to myself so as not to
    offend? Unconstitutional? Hogwash!

    No, my friend, I can say anything I please. It's called
    freedom of speech. Those, like you, who don't wish to hear
    it can strive forever to keep me quiet. Take God from
    everything political and from all that is public domain.
    That's ok. We don't need that. You can not remove it from
    our soul - ever.

    Please understand. I am not of your non-faith. Never have
    been. I am probably a lot older than you are and I am not
    going to change my beliefs no matter how much you and the
    non-Christian population are offended about what I believe.
    Nor are you, I am sure.

    With a gun to my head, I will not deny my faith nor will I
    not write what ever I feel in my ezine. I am not offended by
    your words, just sad to think that at 62 years old I have
    had someone tell me I am insecure in my belief. I don't have
    an insecure bone in my body, heart or soul.

    No, my friend, I think it is you that may be insecure in
    your non-belief (let's call that a wash). You feel a need to
    tell me, not to tell you, something I believe. I would never
    tell you not to say, write or feel something you truly
    believed and that is the difference between you and I. You
    want to shut me up and I say to you - live and let live, in
    peace and harmony.

    Modern day revisionists changing the original concepts of
    the constitution will not make it true. Our God is the same
    then, now and always... You have no God. Is that our doing?
    Must we shut up because you chose not to believe? By what
    authority do you make that law? What law is that? Who is
    your leader?

    Thank you for reminding me that there are those in my ezine
    list who are atheists and non believers. However, this will
    not make me stop (nothing will) saying what I believe. I am
    not preaching, I am asking (in my Christmas message) people
    of all persuasions to help each other. That is all.

    My reader is still subscribed. He has a right to his beliefs
    and I will give anyone room to voice their opinion in my
    ezine. It looks like we came to a meeting of the minds
    which is a very satisfying conclusion. When you write to an
    unknown audience be prepared for some very interesting and
    sometimes surprising feedback. It's what fuels my fire.

    Happy writing.
