A great display of courage and conviction on your part Mr. Ray. Unfortunately those attributes are lost in the current C.M- dominated-political- environment, where atrocities committed in so far away lands against others are out of reach for the millions absent- minded- Americans who only see evil when the so called bad guys are lurking around home.
