Everyone has a story. What's yours?
By Chuck Dishno

When you log on to OurEcho it starts with “Everyone has a story. What's yours?” That is my question. It seems that lately most of the posts are by someone complaining or stumping about something. This is OK for a while but the thing I love about OurEcho are the human interest stories and incidents that life has dealt all of us with. We all have stories that helped shape our lives into the people we are. I believe we are getting off the track that OE was intended to be. When I recommend this site to my friends I am often told that all they see is complaining and griping. I then tell them to go to the archives and click on someone and see what they have written. Most of the stories are good ones and are enjoyable to read.

If I sound like I am complaining, I guess I am but I would like to see OurEcho get back to what I think it was originally intended to be. I try not to complain or crab but if I do I give you all permission to ask me to bend over so you can plant your boot squarely on my gluteus maximus.

OK, I am ready for that kick...Chuck
