Hi, I live in Vancouver, Canada. I've been quietly reading this forum with interest for a while now. As a white person, I want to apologize for the hurt and suffering some of you have experienced at the hands of white people. I am sincerely sorry. Defuse conflict and help encourage and build unity. Help us to focus on objectives and not be so susceptible to distractions that take us off course. Help us learn to love one another dispite our various opinions and world views.
