We are all entitled to our own feelings.  The
Independence day celebration of rights and freedom, do
not cease be it this day or another.  One member of
this list server spoke about Mr. Speranza's seminar in
Rhode Island and how it was very informative it was. 
I worked at a hospital in Philadelphia where a
resident took his own life and was a manic depressive
-clinically.  His suicide was devastating to all of us
who had worked with him, and NONE of us knew. I still
believe to this day he was the most caring person I've
ever met and I thought the world of him.  Is it
important to know the people you work with, YES, but
no one ever fits into a mold, that is why we are all
called "individuals", it can sometimes be just a small
incident that sets someone off and the result be just
devastating to so many.  

As to this list server being a vehicle to promote
something other than Histological questions, well I
take exception.  We are supposed to promote the field
of Histology, but we also promote ourselves as warm
blooded individuals with a "life" outside of
Histology.  Why is it that some cannot accept that
though we use e-mail to communicate information
professionally, that we are people as well.  Even when
it comes to lighthearted communications why is it
necessary for some get their dander up?  I recently
posted a very personal request, because of my daughter
and the responses I received were just wonderful and
they helped me tremendously.  

The rights and freedoms "individual's" do extend to
this list server, we are all entitled to have our say.
 I believe the information passed in this e-mail was
meant to be for the good of all, which I might add is
a right and covered in the freedom of
speech/information.  Be it Histological or not.
