A Nautical Sense of Humour, You Decide Please!
Dear Knothead, thanks for your posting.
You have raised very good points, what do we want, what are we seeking?
WE SEEK TOTAL RECONCILIATION.
TOTAL RECONCILIATION IS ALWAYS POSSIBLE BUT ONLY IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THOSE WHO EARNESTLY SEEK TO ACHIEVE IT.
It is a natural, principled process, of being able to comfortably exchange ideas and opinions and fundamentally, to learn why misconceptions become apparent in the first place. By it''s very nature it cannot be rushed, less at the expense of one party feeling ''miffed'' or that an injustice has been done to them.
We are ready to take our part in the process of Reconciliation (and have been reaching out with the Olive branch for years, particularly since the grounding) and we accept that Forgiveness is an absolute necessity in that process.
To be misunderstood, and deliberately misrepresented, with fear being the dominant nature of the relationship, reconciliation is not possible, because the first principle of reconciliation is undermined. The victim must WANT to forgive as must the perpetrator, must WANT to be forgiven.
Our aims are clear.
Not to be Evicted, to continue with our Way of Life, to work towards sharing a good Interdependent Relationship with our marina operator, CREST NICHOLSON MARINAS LIMITED.
We accept that genuine misunderstandings are a fact of life and we kindly suggest that this may be what has happened here.
We are asking SailNet Members who support our clear aims, to e-mail contact the company concerned at the following site:
Thanks again for your interest, I assure you this is a real life and genuinine appeal.
