I Love Laura's English

Laura Braun is a non-native English speaker who is courageous enough to communicate controversial opinions on this forum in a foreign language. Her references to faith based concepts are annoying to those of us who disagree with her, myself included, but I feel the forum would be less interesting without the color she adds. I hope she stays.

She doesn't like it when people give her a hard time or post silly things pretending to be her, but hopefully she'll be able to hang tough with that and get over it for our sake, because her posts enrich us... not because we need religion (I'm a firm secularist) but because we need diversity of thought to keep us fresh.

Further, her English is interesting because it provides a reference point for others who are learning our language and I find her sentence structure charming.

Please Laura don't abandon us. This forum needs you, together we can combat the sin and spread the truth.

Are you serious? What is a Pentcostal integrist? Pentecostal, I understand, but not the other part!

Oh God , you are so sweet.Tomorrow I will leave US and I thought it will be sad for me... I was just like everyone else coming only with the things which I have seen from Hollywood movies and reading from the newspapers... but nothing can be comparised with whole my language experiance here. I had even working at the telephone. Sometimes it was more dificult then you can imagine . I couldn't see people which I was talking with and I had to concentrate 100 % to recognize for what they were talking about... I wish to tell you that we are only pilgrims on this land and we do not posess nothing. All are posession is LOVE. That's the only gift which we have. May be people are separated, because of too much things which are staying between them, but listen I have seen so many diferent cultures, people are all the same. I have a dream that one day all people will leave in peace. That they will be no war, no hate. May be I'm a dreamer. But I wish if there are much more dreamers just like me. Wish you all the best and I hope that I will see you back again one day.

<<Laura, you must post your regular contact email address here>>

Laura: NO, YOU MUST NOT. Maybe a new unimportant address, that is, an account you can get rid of whenever you want, but DO NOT post your regular address.

"Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace."
