    By "care," I mean in the traditional sense of the word, to wit:

    O.E. carian, cearian "be anxious, grieve; to feel concern or interest," from P.Gmc. *karojanan (cf. O.H.G. karon “to lament,” O.S. karon “to care&rdquo😉

    If affirmative, to what is your care applied?

    Yes, I care about many people, places and things which include the eternal destiny of my soul as well the souls of my family

    members and friends; the accelerating dialectic fueling the downward spiral of the USA; winning our 2010 NFL family pool.

    To be honest, I selfishly care about me. I care about whether or not all that I think, say, and do is worthy of the One that made me.

    In terms of being anxious, as the good book says be anxious for NOTHING. Just leave your cares at the feet of the cross and get on with your day. You know, once the realization that God is in control and that pretty much everything is out of your control is a very liberating realization.

    I too care about myself. I am the most important person in the Universe to me.

    But in order to feel good myself, I care about others in need, in hope that they will care for me when I am in need. That's what social ineteractions is all about. Caring for eachother.

    Give love and you will be loved. Give care and you will be cared. Give affection and you will be given affection.

    I care about others. Some others I care a great deal about. Others, not so much. I care about my family and friends, and about the less fortunate. I care about children who are beaten by their parents and guardians, or by their fellow students; I care about old people who have the same problems of being abused by sub-standard care facilities and sometimes even their families. And I care about families trappped in horrible situations, like war between Palestinians and Israelis, or Afghans and U.S./Allies. and refugees.
    All my care and empathy will not do one iota of good, however, unless it is acted on.

    In the spirit of honesty, I care about being loyal to the truth.

    I care about doing the "right" thing in any given situation. Unachievable, of course, but I keep right on trying.

    Would you entertain the possibility that 'doing the right thing'

    (in chess and in life itself) often begins with right thinking?

    Indeed I would. And in fact I would go further and suggest that right thinking is a prerequisite step in both theatres.

    Would your positive statement to some extent align with Freaky's,

    "In the spirit of honesty, I care about being loyal to the truth" ?

    I'm sure it would and indeed I too am compelled by a similar loyalty, although I imagine contrasting motivations.

    Informed only by your postings over the last couple of months I imagine that you are guided by your faith, a benefit I sadly lack. My motivations are of a rather more selfish nature, I'm afraid.
