  1. Maria, how wonderful that you have such personal conviction. I felt some connection with you speaking your experiences and feeling regarding coming out so big. My prayers, support, and best wishes go out to you. Mostly hoping that we grow up as a species of love and acceptance. From a 57 year old white, blue collar worker with an open heart. and nothing but love for you! Fair well in your journey. Chris from Cleveland.
