    few comments like this and in a way I feel bad. I didn't explain myself well enough. It's difficult for me to see the difference between how I FEEL about what's going on vs. what's really happening. I'm seeing more and more that I'm not as alone as I feel but it's difficult to express both of those points if that makes sense.

      Please don't feel bad. Being singled out and targeted can easily complicate (to say the least) anyone's attempt at being their best.
      And if my wife and I, and you, and many many many others can have anything to do with it, there will be an end to this stupid bigotry sooner rather that later.
      And what I'm learning as I go along in life, is that there are number of times that you just have to fight back.  
      If I can add a bit of metaphor here...
      We can settle it by gathering all of this bigotry and placing it into a big rocket ship, then launching it into outer space and so as to never hear from it again.  Or if it doesn't want to go in this peaceful manner, then we'll have to figure out a way to nuke into extinction.
      And one way of the other, things will get better.
      Cool buddy?
