Dear Ranchhand. I am so impressed by your wisdom and knowledge. Your answers to Lt Sulu are very well crafted. I feel it is important that he listen to you and I believe that you get through to him. It seems that he does have respect for you and as her reads and digests more I feel that this respect will grow. He has pain inside because of what happened with his brother but I feel that he can recieve some kind of healing from listening to the gay people here, especially you. Perhaps he has a stereotyped view of gays and by talking to people here he can lose some of these stereotypes. I would hope that he will be able to appreciate the beauty of human diversity. I sincerely thank you for teaching us all here. God bless you my friend.

Happy Easter Ranchhand!
Happy New Year friend! You are an inspiration to me and I hope this new year brings good things for you. :)
Greetings Ranchhand: I wished your husband happy holidays and I will extend the same to you. May your Christmas be a blessed and joyful one as it surely will be with your children. Many blessings to you also in the New Year.
May God's Peace be with You Always - Mark (Angel Boy)
Merry Christmas, Ranchhand, to you and your family!
Greetings Ranchhand. You are a stay at home dad with 5 children. Wow! What an inspiration. I felt so sad when I read that when you were young your parents did not accept you. Did it make a diffence when you had children? Perhaps seeing you as a dad and loving their grandchildren would make them appreciate you for the wonderful man that you are. I have pretty much lived a sheltered life and sadly I am not really friends with any gay couples. I did have a gay couple that I talked to on the internet but they have split up. The one guy especially is a really great guy and I talk to him almost daily. I have learned so much by talking to people from different backgrounds. I am glad that I am accepting and tolerant of others and this includes becoming more accepting of myself. Have a great day and God bless you.

I was just about to log off and then saw the calendar announcement! Our birthdays are just a few weeks apart. You're just a few weeks older than me! Anyway, I hope things are going well for you and that you had an awesome, wonderful, fun-filled birthday! Take care! ((RH))
Happy Birthday, Ranchhand! Wishing all the joy and blessings which you so rightly deserve.
Thank you for all the joy and peace you bring to this world.
