Staying Neutral …Whether People Like It or Not

Dear Journal,

After sitting here and banging my head on the desk for the last few days in regard to the fact that I think that that idiot Garrosh is going to do something stupid that will affect Azeroth adversely.  I have come to the conclusion that there is no way that I can stop it, however, there are other means to get around when situations change dramatically, which I’m sure that whatever this is, is going to be extremely dramatic. 

I am an Ambassador for the Horde, I’ve worked on negotiations for years between parties that have chosen to disagree and have been fairly successful with my endeavors over the years.  I have averted a few things that could have brought on a small civil war between some of the groups and have walked away knowing that I was successful or at least knowing that I have done my best to remain neutral with them.  It took me a long time to get the title and for it to be recognized, which it is recognized in most cases, and I’m considered more than a meddling businessman when it comes to this work.

I’m happy to say that Kaldor is also an Ambassador for the Alliance.  He’s good at what he does and in time I think that he will develop into quite a good Ambassador, it just takes time and experience.  Fortunately or Unfortunately, he did inherit my gift for talking at least.  He’s like a diamond in the rough right now but I can see that his mind is definitely working when he is dealing with issues that require a mediator. 

Maybe between the two of us we can still keep things at a level of neutrality and avoid some of the conflicts that I am sure are going to be dumped into our laps in the near future.  I’m sure that some of the more hardcore military minded folks will think that we are both traitors to our factions, however, that will be their prerogative and we will have to deal with that on a case by case basis. 

At least Amyn has done her part in getting the boys back to Dalaran for the time being, although, Kaldor still makes the trek back to Stormwind to make sure that everything is going okay with the company at least.  He hasn’t mentioned his young lady very much since he’s been home, however, that’s something I won’t pry into because it’s none of my business as his Father. 

I know that he and I have never sat at opposite ends of a negotiation table yet, however, I think that this is going to happen very soon.  I know that he has a level head on his shoulders, thanks to his Mother keeping his head out of his backside most of his life.  She’s a remarkable woman and I have all of the respect in the world for her with the way that she does her own brand of being a negotiator, however, that Sentinel will take over every now and again which means the negotiations end rather abruptly.

Well, now that I know the children are safe and my wife is at home, I can relax a little bit more.  It is going to be a bit hard on the older boys, however, they can go about their business as long as they let us know where they are for a while.  I’m still uneasy and worried and I think I will be that way for a while. 

I guess this is all about how it is when you’re parenting and running businesses.  Something is constantly preying on your mind.
