Oh well.
On Francesca’s Judgment of The Buddha
Arin Basu

The truth is, you’re adorable. It has been interesting to me to see the range of responses, and to see how people respond — what do they read or feel from my post, and what words and emotion they feel compelled to contribute. I don’t sense any maliciousness in the posts I’ve seen, though I do find pain, anger, and sometimes impatience and condescension. Occasionally there is compassion or empathy, too, a willing ability to be present and at peace with another. This gives me hope, and encouragement, for all of us. Sweet humans. I’ll never give up on you.
