I'm just so sad to continually see nastiness and separatism between groups of people who all want Ayla home. I don't understand it. It's not even like it's non-purposeful, either. It's a conscious choice, which has been stated very clearly by some. How does that help Ayla? The more of us that come together for Ayla, the stronger we are. It is beyond egotistical to think that all Ayla needs is one group or another. This "We got this, we don't want or need you" attitude is just awful. Honestly it makes me worse than angry; it makes me feel even more devastated for Ayla. The self-centered grudges and blind assumptions are unbelievable.
To those who stubbornly maintain the divide; whether or not you realize it, by refusing to let go of the drama and past insult (whether actual or perceived), you are shifting energy and focus from Ayla to yourselves. Ayla is already missing, must she become lost in the midst of drama and grudges as well? Don't you think that Ayla deserves for all of us to look past our own experiences and hard feelings, to pull together for HER?
This is just something that has been weighing heavily on my heart, and I hope that everyone who reads this will answer yes to that last question. Please… if you are holding hard feelings, put them aside for Ayla. Take a step forward, and then another, and then another. Don’t look back at any negativity. Look forward with hope and purpose. Look to either side of you for the support of your peers who have joined you in the quest for JUSTICE FOR AYLA!
Thank you, ~MW~"
