What if you could go back in time?
Jon Bon Jovi: “I would have sailed with Christopher Columbus, so I could have been the first to discover America. I certainly would have named it something else. I’m Italian, so I have a right to do that. I might have named it something to the effect of Bon Joviland.”
I always loved the shots from this photo shoot, probably because Jon and Richie are just adorable, and I’ve sort of collected as many as I can find when I’ve found them. However, I know there are a few I miss, a few are cut in half and I didn’t post those, also I’ve found only one single shot of Jon alone. Therefore I’ll ask kindly; is there anybody out there who has/knows where to find more of them? I’d be forever grateful if anyone would be that kind and send me links or just the pictures as they are, thank you before hand. :3
Oh, enough with this “in our hearts” line, Gayle.
Hey, Jovifamily, reblog this post if you want to officially start it back up again .
If you want to get the list back up and the love spreading again.
Guys, fuck the anons. Come on.
We had a good thing going, especially when it first started. The BonJoviFamily was a way for people with a common interest, a common love to find each other.
It was a constant reminder that there are people out there who understand why you love what you love. It made people feel less alone. It was a way for new people on tumblr to feel welcome and to find where they belong.
There are fandoms. But we were a family. Maybe some people don’t understand the definition of family, but I feel like most people did. Most people were committed to being there for others. Even if people disagreed on issues, they were always there for one another when bad stuff happened.
A lot of the original members are no longer here, either by choice or by circumstance. But that doesn’t mean the same feeling of camaraderie can’t be found again amongst the new people. We only need people to be willing to support and love each other, and there are always people willing to do that.
We just need some points to be understood:
~The family is an all inclusive group. There are no requirements and you do not need an invitation.
~To be included in it you simply have to contact Gayle (notoldjustolder).
~All members should know that if they are contacted by someone who wants to join that they should direct that person to Gayle.
~Once in the family, you’re name will be added to the master list which is spread around for the purpose of members being able to find each other easily.
~There are no requirements to abide by once you’re in the family. You don’t have to do anything. The agreement you make to be in it is simply that you are agreeing to be part of the list.
~Members are encouraged to support one another in times of trouble.
~Members are encouraged to be open to speaking to and helping anyone who contacts them with a problem they need help with.
That’s it, really. Unless anyone has anything to add.
This is a thing driven by people. The family does not have a mind of its own. How well it works is determined by how active and helpful the members are being.
No doubt there will be people who will try to ruin a good thing. Those anons were proof of that. But if we stand against them, let them try all they want. They’re not going to accomplish anything.
I know things are rough right now with the whole Jon/Richie ordeal, but we can’t let that tear us apart.
In fact, this is a time to be there for each other. More than ever.
It’s easy to argue over the topic. Emotions are running high. People have different views on the subject.
We can look at it as a means to debate each other, or we can look at it as a means to come closer together.
People need support now. I definitely do. I’m hurt. I’m tired of rumors. I’m tired of the drama. I just want my friends, my family, to tell me it’s all going to be okay, regardless of what’s going on right now. We need to band together, not push away from each other.
So, what do you guys say?
