I don't know why, because Ning has not figured it out yet, but if you get "Our apologies" or a "500 Error" it's a problem with the Ning platform today. They say it will be fixed by 10AM PST but I haven't seen evidence of that.
“It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.”
