I was rather disturbed by the quote used in today's inspiration. It was one by Chairman Mao, who as a former communist dictator, enslaved thousands of his people and killed millions more during his Cultural Revolution. The true number of deaths attributed to him may never be known, but some experts say that it could well exceed the millions killed by Stalin, another communist dictator in an adjoining country. A very poor choice by whomever chooses the quotes for this section and very likely an huge insult to American citizens of Chinese origin , not to mention their feelings of disgust and revulsion when they read this quote. I'm sure there are many gardening quotes available for use, and this monsters quote did not have to be selected. Very, very bad choice. Thumbs down Thumbs down Thumbs down Thumbs down Thumbs down

Whoops! I'm deleting it now. This was not intentionally done.

Totally ok, Dave. Right now in these very troubled times, it was very disturbing. Everyone makes mistakes. No ones perfect. I'm sure not! See, I need to apologize to you for being so harsh about the way I presented my opinion. I could have been, should have been, much more diplomatic. My nerves are on edge right now. Not an excuse. Please forgive me.

There's nothing to forgive. I'm very glad you brought this to my attention!
