While this subject can be pretty touchy for almost all people, my opinion is that there has got to be a middle or general ground that we all can discover. I do appreciate that youve added relevant and intelligent commentary here though. Thank you!

Almost all of what you mention happens to be astonishingly precise and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadnt looked at this in this light before. This piece really did switch the light on for me as far as this specific subject matter goes. But there is one position I am not necessarily too comfy with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the main idea of the issue, allow me see what all the rest of the readers have to say.Very well done.
