Sorry man for your loss. I don't know what to say :( .

I am glad that you still have your family around you.

You too :( Sorry for your loss.

I was laid off too less than 2 months ago, those were very painful times. I can't claim to know what you've been through. But I tasted part of it. I hated it

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. May better times dawn upon you soon

Oh. My. GOD!!!

I am SO sorry for the compounding of loss you have experienced, my peer in age, libertarianism and love of all good things Chicago/Amman.

You have an AMAZING attitude. God HAS blessed you! Lesser men would have been rendered paralyzed by half of what you have experienced.

Do you mind if I link and ask my readership to pray for you?

I'm training my self to appreciate the gift of life more than the other materialistic stuff.I appreciate your comments and kind words.

Qwaider, Being laid off was not really the main issue, I'm bothered by the the injustices that were leveled against me. My lay off was a clear prejudice and discriminatory act.I was called a terrorist hiding an explosive belt underneath my wintor coat by the exexutive director in the middle of a staff meeting.My position was not eliminated, a friend of the executive director is occupying my former postion. Thanks for your comment and kind words.

Hatem, I am very sorry for all what you've been, if anyone acted in any discriminatory way towards you make sure you sue the heck out of them, being accepted as you are is one of the great things about the country we're living in. I hope things will get better in the future. True wealth is having things that money cannot buy and you have it.

Thanks Hareega for stopping by.

Discrimination is very difficult to prove, in addition I was working on a yearly contract and when my contract expired they simply stated that they weren't going to renew it.

Greetings old friend, it has been quite some time since we have communicated. I have just read your "One year later" post and I am so sorry for your loss. 2009 was a very bad year for all of us.

I am very happy to hear that your family is well. I am sure that this New Year will bring many good things your way.

How in the world can I reach you via email?

Stay strong Hatem and God Bless you and your family.
