Hi Sue,

Errol usually doesn't like to publish responses that consist
solely of, "Right on" or "I agree" but, . . .

Damn, sister that was one of the most gut level, honest, sane
and well written statements as has ever come from an abductee!

I bow deeply at the waist and tip my hat to you. It is people
_like_you_ that I have dedicated my life to. _You_ are a shining
example of 'why' I have chosen to do so.

Thanx. Great/excellent post! And thanks for _proving_ a point
that I've been trying to make for years!
