As I read Kimís tribute to her younger sister I thought about my childhood experience of growing up a little overweight (still am to a certain extent).

The Darwinian philosophy of the survival of the fittest seems to manifest itself most vividly in the cruel nature of the carnal and uncaring hearts and minds of many youngsters and adults.

Iíve been called every name in the book that has to do with being overweight; fat _ss, lard _ss, porky the pig, Arnold the hog, fat boy, greasy belly, biggon, just to mention a few. When we went out for recess at school I was always one of the last to be chosen to play on a particular ball team or other school playground game. I was often ostracized and ridiculed by other kids (and adults) for no good reason other than my weight.

It is indeed very sad to know that we live in society that glorifies certain physical attributes and victimizes those who do not posses these attributes. Like cold hearted reptiles, we tend to zero in on those who are different and engage in the attack (whether in word or deed).

Although Charles Darwin may have discovered some valid scientific facts, the fact remains that a world void of love, compassion and caring for others is indeed a world void of God and all His attributes.

So, the question remains, are we cold hearted snakes full of deadly poison in our tongues or do we posses some inkling of a human conscience capable of expressing love and compassion for others?

Kim, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time in your lives. It sounds like your sister was a wonderful person.

What does this have to do with N tractors? More than you realize!

Kim your words were first classd. i'm glad you cared so much for your sister. Alot of us wished we had a close family. I appreciate your honesty too. I have told my teenager since she was ten that the meanest people she would ever know would be kids. My six year old found out the same thing at a christian pre-school.

I hope you can still find the time during the holiday season to look back on all the great times you two had. last year was the first good thanksgiving my mom and I had in years, and this was the first thanksgiving without her.....

Prayers on the way for your family

Kim, please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your dear sister. She was far too young to go. In August I lost my older brother at the young age of 58, to cancer. He introduced me to tractors. It sounds as if you learned a lot about grace, kindness, and love from your sister. She leaves that as a lasting legacy, and for that, we are blessed. May God's grace and healing be with you. Jon

Very well written Rick. My wife is over weight and after reading Kim's tribute, it made me think how fortunate I am to have her. Some days I spend over 1 hour reading yt mag. My dad died in 1998 and I still have his 2N and 971-D tractors. Not a day goes by that I don't think about my dad. Thanks again, Kim for this wonderful site. Barrett Jones
