  • To all my HCMA friends

    I found this and thought this was so true!

    Touch Someone!

    People Ask" How can you be friends
    with someone you have never met?"
    I tell them" You have never
    been online I bet!".

    It's something people offline
    will never understand.
    You open up your heart to
    friendship with your typing Hands.

    It's a world full friendship at your
    finger tips, there is so much.
    Online, it only takes a heart
    to reach people with your touch.

    First you start out online,
    surfing all around.
    Next thing you know a great
    friend will be found.

    You will chat a lot and
    surf cyber space.
    Soon it will be your second home,
    a comforting special place.

    A Friend to share your
    dreams and your tears
    and to help each other
    wipe away life's fears.

    You will share life together
    and help each other along
    You will make it thru bad weather
    because friendship is so strong.

    No matter how far apart you go,
    your keyboards will keep you together.
    and in your heart you will know you
    don't need a face to be a true friend forever.

    So, How do you explain this to
    people who have never been online.
    I guess it takes a gesture of
    friendship & a little bit of time.

    So let's start by sending this around
    and passing our special touch.
    A smile, a website, a gesture starts it all..
    becoming friends doesn't take much!
