9. That is a powerful life perspective.
I hope people read that and get that message.

With that background, and your collection of challenges, you have a pretty substantial and knowledgeable position from which to speak on a lot of really challenging and stressful subjects. Subjects in which a lot of people just have guesses and very basic opinions, but you lived this stuff.

Like, being in an inter-racial relationship
or being in an inter-cultural relationship
or being in an mixed-religious relationship (you didn't say, but I'm guessing)
or being a single mother, raising bi-racial kids, in poverty
or being a single mother, while going to college, and working

So many different issues, and each of them very complex in their own right. Wow! That's a lot of personal experience for one person to live. I don't know whether to give you my heartfelt congratulations for surviving all of these challenges, or my heartfelt condolences that you had to.
