On FB, 'James, Thank you for facilitating the discussions and the insights."  This in response to my expression of appreciation to him for his thoughtful comments and Corrections to what I post on Facebook.
Only this morning, prior to receiving this kind comment, I found a peace regarding my use of Facebook that I've been searching for. It came to me.  My struggle with Facebook and my use thereof, has centered around judging whether it was a good use of my time, an indulgence of an addiction, and or enabling of the cheap by standing, fence sitting, name calling, but is so easy on Facebook among the best of us.
The peace that came to me was this, I thought of Franz Yeagerstatter, who before the Nazis killed him spoke, how can anyone find what is good when all of the signs point in the wrong direction?
Late in life I experience that a lifetime of effort has yielded a strong moral compass to me. And the peace I received regarding Facebook this morning was, there is a value in speaking  regularly, briefly, clearly, from that moral compass that others could consider.
