Soothing indeed comforting words true to the point. But then one would continue to do what he or she prefers to do. No need to change to get them back. Ignore but what you gain? Do not highlight to the group ignoring. Keep patting them for whatever way they are. People themselves change their ways and get long to get back to old group or even ancient ones. A friend of mine was writing to letters to the editor of so many popular magazines and news papers. Many were not published. Years passed. But today he is chief editor for a prominent news paper in several cities of India. Future journalism students are trained by him. He enjoys friendship from huge groups. Thanks and Regards.
