This isn't a rant,aint too sure what it is ,only i've a need to get it of my chest.Where too begin,why am i here?Im 41 and should know better ,tis only a show which got cancelled,but im here most days .I can relate too most of the characters,book,wash even mal,you dont get too my age without collecting a few scars even if i am in my shepard mode and have hope.don't get me wrong i've a good life and know i have ,which is the important thing.When i first came here JETFLAIR gave me a wave and wrote this "being a browncoat is sharing a powerful love of this cancelled show with an extended family of frendly folk all across the world.It's not really a costume thing,or any such artificial construct.Most of us call ourselves browncoats because something about the show resonates very strongly with us and when we discover other people with whom we have that in commom,frendships are born ".Now too the hub of it,I've spent the last two weeks in hospital visiting a relative,I can cope with our pain but i was talking too a nurse ,she had spent three day with my relative and she was in bits,a relative stranger,been doin the job twenty years or so with tears in her eyes.Nearly cut me in two .Im not too sure what im saying only that there is more good in the world than I give it credit for.hopefully someone understand me .nuff sed

Hello Dun,
First of all I do hope that everything is well with the individual you spent time in the hospital with. Secondly your post here was an uplifting one.

Yes there are people that we barely know that do care about us ..ie the nurse ( I won’t call them strangers) and we care about other folk as well. Pain, suffering, joy, anguish, delight…..we all know these as a human race even with our differences. As browncoats we have been brought together by our love of the show Firefly/Serenity and we have become family. I too come here everyday and although I may not post something everyday I still hope to one day hear news and info that our extended family, the cast and crew of FF, are getting back together for more. Also I like hearing what’s going on with my browncoats friends. I’ve never felt as welcome by a group of folk as I felt the first time I signed on to the browncoat community. We keep holding and talking with one another and I feel that as Jewel expressed in an interview not long ago, there will be a SHINY day in the sun for us.

See ya, Z
btw I'm 52

Sounds like you've discovered the truth that a lot of us lose track of, that the government and media don't, don't want to, remind us of.

There are a lot of good folks out there, doing good,caring, lending a helping hand, sometimes just listening, one on one, not through their church or government or organization.

Doesn't mean that there isn't bad stuff out there, too, but the good outweighs the bad, most times, most places. However, nobody ever sold a newspaper or got a Neilsen rating, for reporting the majority GOOD NEWS...
