Dear Maria, please forgive me if I have ever made you uncomfortable due to the anonymous nature of the internet and debates that lack ones tone of voice and visual cues.
You have never offended me despite our usually being on opposite ends of the spectrum of a number of issues. Quite the opposite, you have always been kind and you have never personalized our differences. I agree with Gebre above, to the extent of posts that I have read and remembered.
May you always be present here.
Lord, Have Mercy
