    I have to admit I never expected to see anyone trash Mother Teresa.
Who's next Gandhi? MLK? Your right about one thing and that is that
speaking poorly of Mother Teresa does carry a stigmatism with it. It's will
usually get you the same reaction as saying the Holocaust never existed. At
first I thought you must be speaking tongue in cheek but as I read on I found
that you were being quite serious and of course I found this quite
discouraging. I feel privileged to have lived in a time when she did live
and gave so freely of herself because if I did not I would think that she
were someone that people had made up as a modern day myth or legend. Her
example has made me demand much more of myself and my life and what I do with
it. It's people like her that make me stop what I'm doing and take a good
look a my value system and think about what I'm doing with my life. I'm not
attacking you about your opinion I just don't get it. The woman took what
she knew and did the best she could with it. Not too many people could leave
the sort of impact that she left in the world, not in a positive way.
