My hope is that by sharing my story, a little of that enlightenment can happen, and that working together, we can make that change.

    Have you ever thought how odd it is that the place where we all go to hop on a plane to do business, or take our vacation is called an airport terminal? Same for bus terminal, and back in "the day", the train terminal? I have pondered that thought many times.
