Jessie, Wow! I find it unbelievable that people can act like these two piglets in your story. I have never personally have seen this type of behavior, although I have heard it and have felt the hostility of hate of people who don't like you for your race or ethnicity. Having never had to confront them, I did see it in the early 70's, when I was stationed on the USS Hancock and race relations were at their lowest. Rumors of race riots on the USS Kitty Hawk, which actually happened, bled over to the Hancock. Things were tense for awhile and the Navy finally got their act together and started race relations seminars. But yours is more poignant, as it involved your son, Jonathan, at a young age. Having to go through that kind of abuse without knowing why is the cruelest of all things that can be done to an innocent child. I applaud your bravery and tenacity in handling these bigots the way you did. I can't wait for the "rest of the story" Gerry Life is short. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.
