Comment Policy

Thrive for REAL™ welcomes comments from anyone. I am old school, so I do expect respectful dialogue and focus on the topic at hand. By sharing our stories of what it is to be human, we help ourselves, each other, and our world.

If you disagree with what another has said, you may say so in a non-offensive and kind-hearted way. Remember, we’re all doing the best we can, where we are, with what we have. OK, most of us. Anyway, profanity, name-calling and otherwise rude behavior will likely get your post deleted or edited. Comments that will cause liability or legal problems will also be deleted. Poor grammar and spelling could be revised (sorry, I was an English professor in a previous life…maybe).

Spam, trolling, and advertising in comments are prohibited.

Thank you for helping make Thrive for REAL a source of intelligent information sharing.
