Jackson, thank you for sharing your story and the process that led you to critical thinking and rational decision making. Life is a beautiful and precious thing, but not one given and taken by superstition. The wonder of looking into a clear night sky, seeing all those stars, and knowing I am made up of some of the same materials and formed by natural processes as they are. I also have the gift of consciousness and am awake and aware of my surroundings.
How did you decide to leave your homeland and come to the U.S.?
I am not very proud of my country right now and intend to work very hard to elect a different president of the U.S. I feel heartsick about what he does.
I hope you will be witness to the non-violent way of changing our leaders; I hope the change will be a decent and ethical one.
