Hi Melanie,

Thank you for your suggestion that I take a vacation overseas with the eventual possibility of relocating.

However, I love this country and I don’t want to leave. I think the fact that every American has the right to freely express themselves, in whatever way they choose, as is protected in the Constitution, really extraordinary.

I can tell from your enthusiastic invitation presented to me to explore new worlds, that you too are a patriot who loves the freedoms that we, as Americans, are so privileged to enjoy.

Thank you sincerely for reading my post, Melanie, and I hope you and your husband get some time to travel overseas soon but, unfortunately, I will not be joining you.

All best,
