Hi Donny,
I'm glad about what you said at the end of your post about God and family. Keep thinking that way and at least mentally you've got the best medicine you can have. I know it's hard to talk about what this Government did and even worse, ignoring the fact. I know that truth will prevail in the end. "God Bless You" for having the strength to tell your story.
