Impressive

I am surprised. I knew that you had the misfortune of leading a traumatic and abusive childhood, but I had no idea how bad it was.
The fact that you did not grow up to be a sociopath or a murderer is not only impressive, but it shows an inspiring amount of strength in your character to, not only NOT go down that dark path, but to also become the person you are today, where instead of wanting to vicariously seek revenge for what happened to you in the past, you have shown commitment to the opposite by wanting to make the world a better place for everyone and trying to help create a world where things like this never happen to anyone again.

A short note...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Andrew, I must be brief here. I have read both your recent submissions, including your comments on this thread (not yet published, as I would like to have a written response ready beforehand). I do plan to reply at length, but I currently have many submissions in queue that await my attention. Please be patient. It might take upwards of a week for me to address the valid issues you have broached. I trust you understand.

Not a problem

Sorry Darlene, I thought when the comments hadn't gone live that I might have unintentionally put my additional comment on here in a way that might not have been 100% appropriate for the site, as I was feeling highly emotional at the time I put the comment on here, and that that was the reason it hadn't appeared. That was why I also posted the question saying the exact same thing. I appreciate the fact that this site not only keeps you busy but that you have several other commitments as well and so I understand that the response might take a while. I'll patiently await your posting of the comments and replies.
