When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

Dear Larry,

Thanks for the articles; I just wanted to tell you what a beautiful flare
you have for penning down your thoughts. I happen to know all that takes time.... Valarie Owen

Basically, the game “King of the Hill” prepares you for walking amongst the enemy - the evil mongers - in search of your fallen brethren - not matter whether adult, or youth. It’s really no more complicated than that, but it’s a very, very difficult journey, nonetheless. And, I am certain there are many folks doing just that, today..

.".. and, besides, if you are that narrow minded in the first place you have no business in a position that requires a level, fair and balanced head on the ole shoulders. Scatter-gun proclamations like this are nothing more that short-sightedness from those that don't mind "throwing out the baby with the bath water." And, besides, if you cannot stand the profanity, darkness, vulgarity, that exists in these havens of corruption, then, by all means, step-aside, and "get out of the kitchen." But, there are some of us that need to enter these havens of evil, search for our youth, and "return America back to its rightful owners before it's too late."

You have to know your enemy, and to know your enemy, you have to be willing to become as stealthy as he is. There is no room for fear, here. If need be, you slay them with their own weapon of choice. - "A Message to the Common, Ordinary, American Man," Larry Blakeley, October 10, 2004

Note: This file contains a link to a startling example of just how difficult it is to communicate over the internet. The file is a recording of a conversation that began with "f.... you, Larry Blakeley," and ended with "God bless."

The point is that you must be "tough as a boot" to go amongst the evil mongers - and, you must not be deterred by false accusations of your person, but, rather, disregard all such messages that only serve to beat you down, and encourage you to "give up" on those you are searching for - good men, with good hearts, in a hostile world - especially, the virtual world of the internet - where "anonymity" may encourage more hostile feelings than talking to someone "face to face."

But, please make sure that you don't pass-over the most important conclusion of this good man's perseverence to continue communicating:

this good man's disclosure of his heart - a fear that all of us, fathers, share in commonality - no matter what race, color of skin, religious faith, or on what soil they are walking upon on the face of mother earth. I don't believe it can be said any better than Colonel John Yuill, "Larry, it is quite apparent that you deeply loved & admired your Father. I find that admirable & can only hope that my children feel that way about me..." - "Communication Achieved," http://www.royblakeley.name/larry_blakeley/articles/communication_breakdown_yuill.htm

I must "walk the walk of the talk I talked" with my children. Many times, one of them would complain about another saying, "your stupid." They would come in to me with this until they learned my "stock" question back to them of "well, are you?"

No, Dad.

"Then don't worry about it."

Amazing - but, after a while they quit asking me - they had already received their answer - in "themselves."
