Dear Dina,

Shannon, thank you so much for your thoughtful and civil response. I understand and respect all of the points you have made. And I am glad you feel content and happy in your environment. Unfortunately many women do not feel the same and I hope they can find some comfort in the fact that someone cares about them. You are right, we need to be compassionate and understanding of each other.
