The University of Chicago is the first place that made me feel safe

Compelling powerful statement, I support and respect your unique perspective on the matter. Sadly most Americans fail to realize or recognize or participate in our great democracy. Americans need the insights from the cultural diverse members of other countries to remind them that what we have is special.

Thank you for participating in our democracy.

As for your wounds from childhood. For some sharing is a path to healing; we all wish to be well and whole.
