On a related note, here's one of my favorite quotes:



“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

The more things change, the more they stay the same... St Augustine had it right so long ago: restless are our hearts until they come to rest in God's perfect love.

Thanks Kristen, I love Mother Teresa and her wisdom. As far as Manti, I can definitely see him being sucked in, and I think the entire cancer thing was an attempt to remove her from the situation, she had to pass on the same day as his grandmother, or the gig would really be up for the perpetrator of the hoax. . .because surely the woman he loves would want to be there for him at such a time, but given she was a made up profile, she couldn't be. It makes me sad that so much time and energy is being expended on this.

It is most probably in an effort to disparage him in the first place and it definitely embarrasses not only him, but his family, his school, his friends. Leave the boy alone and if we are going to talk about this, lets talk about the fact that there are so many people vulnerable to such relationships in the first place.

Scammers abound who attempt to prey upon people who are lonely, want desperately to be loved, etc. And, kids are doing this "catfish" thing all over the place. I think one of the young women who recently committed suicide after a round of cyber bullying included the bully creating an online boy who became the boyfriend of the girl in question, then broke up with her in an ugly way, etc. It isn't funny and it isn't right, but it happens. And, yes, they can carry it on for quite awhile.

Makes me sad for him and for everyone else that this happens to.

Wanted to see if anyone else is concerned about identity issues with the Manti Te'o story. I know many people think he was part of the hoax, but it sounds so sad, I think he was really that naive. Just because he's a football player doesn't mean he doesn't want to be loved for who he is. Or am I the naive one?

Well, this evening I received a collect call from the local prison for an individual named. I did not accept this call. He was on the current inmate registry as arrested yesterday for drug possession.

I believe I received this call because of my easy home phone number and after some reflection decided it was not due to any interactions here or on Facebook.

However, the reality is, guarding our identities and address is important.

And as to whether there could be fake women or fake men on this site - Manti Te'o story would prove that it is possible.

If online dating could possibly get a worse rep this guys gone ahead and done it. My son told me a fuuny joke though, What's the difference between Tebowing and Te'oing? People believe God exists.
