Having Experince
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Without having the experince.
How do they say do this.

To help people out.
You have to know what you're talking about.

All the book cases that are read.
Aren't felt the same way as a victim feels in their heads.

To really help out you have to experience it.

Book learning for life, isn't as good as
experience learning in life, for helping people.

so true

Unless you experience something for yourself, you don't really know. Great read

I always know

....that you'll have the poem of the day! Barb! It's a pleasure to sit in this chair and read all 9 lines of your good advice! You know, I was thinking about that the other corresponds with your poem....when you misconstrue facts you've opened up a can of worms so to you said, you've got to know what you're talking about....
I second the notion!

Thanks for the lesson Queen! It was an enjoyable read!
