I drop the gauntlet at the perp. responsible
I am a light infantryman that came home from Iraq to find that a coward that calls himself an assassin had the gaul to deface my temple. I issue a challange to the one responsible to meet me there alone W/ no weapons tommorrow night at 2330! If you do not show up I will slander your name AND seek to distroy ANY AND ALL quote un-quote ART you have placed anywhere I find it! I will also seek to track you down and have you apprehened for destruction of private property.

|The people that have PTSD issues are the people that I trust the most. The reason we have PTSD is the fact that we love you more than you love us!|

|dunno, maybe more details, a picture, a reason for the post to begin with, might help us to "get" it?
And, respectfully, I disagree on this point: "The reason we have PTSD is the fact that we love you more than you love us!" --post traumatic stress disorder comes from being in a totally screwed situation, and having a realistic, though difficult time coming to grips with the screwed-ish-ness of the situation. I can have PTSD after falling down my stairs, getting in a car accident, or being attacked by an interloper in my own home. I may have feelings that never occurred before the incident.
That's totally different than feeling, perhaps, like the country --or city, or county, or neighborhood, or family-- that you call "home" doesn't quite understand your experience.
Let people in, and they can help. Be specific about the wrongs, and they might be right-ed.

Just buff it and make it harder for people to get on the roof of the temple. Its not art its a tag... you seriously come off sounding like a nut case, don't expect him showing up tonight.

|I've heard the perp was actually already caught if not for that, but for other tagging. Guess posting pics of your crimes on MySpace may not pay off in props but in getting his ass caught.
This sort of thing makes me angry too but hopefully the Temple can better secure that roof to prevent this sort of thing in the future. Anyone know of any progress there?

|just don't go "Timothy McVeigh" on us dude. we're all friends here
Remember: Anger is the path to the dark side of the force.

|About the fire escape, that fix does sound like a no-brainer, and has been looked into. But most importantly as you know, it must continue to comply with building and fire department codes, and there are some issues there. And I'm sure the cost of modyfying it in a way that still complies might make it prohibitive, especially given other committments of preservation and charity on a limited budget, with volunteer effort. Another factor not looked into has to do with modifications on a landmark building that is on the list of Tacoma Historic Places. www.tacomaculture.org/historic/propertie... But while this and other areas are being looked into by the organization's trustees (as well as improved security and surveillance), it is hoped that the vast, vast majority of people in the 253 will continue to respect Tacoma's remaining historic buildings - even if they don't take the time to look into who owns it and what they do. This building, the organization, and this chapter have remained for over one hundred years, and a bit of rolling by a teenager won't undo that. Gonna be a pain to fix, though, and it won't be the same.
Anger and dissention is not good and the blogger knows it is actually against the philosophy of the Lodge formed in 1864 under the motto "friendship, charity, and benevolence." (Characteristics by the way the tagger's own friends are displaying.) But to the blogger: I'd never want to cross you or your battalion. (Oh, minor detail: The teenage tagger probably doesn't know when 2330 is.)
