I had a Philosophy teacher a couple semesters ago. i remember one lecture he gave while i was there. It was a hypothetical situation about if somepony planted a bomb in a building, he contacted all the news stations and says he will detonate it in 30 seconds, giving nopony inside any time to escape. In that 30 seconds, all the people inside were scared, crying, and praying that they would not die. Everypony else was watching in, loved ones worried for people stuck in the building.
After the 30 seconds were up, the bomb malfunctioned and did not detonate. Everypony was saved. There was mass celebration, everypony was hugging and crying. Parties broke out and everone was in a euporic state of mind.
It made me think about us, here on Ponychan. In the last week, i saw 2 "raids", a thread that made people yell and hurt eachother with their words. While these acts in of themselves were bad, what happened afterwards was intriguing. Hug threads, party threads, feel good threads went up, many ponies posted in them and everypony was sharing kindness and laughter with eachother.
Everything thrown at us has made us stronger. In the heat of conflict, we hold together as bronies. Our love is tested and grows more powerful by the day.
We probably lost a couple bronies in these hard times, but our resilience and our tolerance has made us stronger, more caring, more loving of each and everypony. A Harmony if you will.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Ponychan, and every fan of the show has showed me real examples of the Elements of Harmony.
Here we are free to show our true feelings, critique others, and praise and apologize without fear. I see people give honest reasons of why they feel certain ways, and people honestly responding in a good and helpful way. Honesty
Many Bronies never stray from the ideas of Love, Trust, and Friendship. People Parasprite us, someponies lash out in anger or frustration, but eachtime i see them recieve tolerant and loving responses even if nopony agrees with them. we show loyalty to the show, this chan, and eachother. Loyalty
