You do not know me from a bug bite, and in the unlikely event you read this I hope you won’t be offended.
I say offended because I am not a viewer of your show and the ones I happened to watch sometimes appeared to be in bad taste. I felt many story’s exploited the “Hornbeck” family not just your show.
I must be honest with you. What is character Oprah if you just must kiss butt to get along in this world or just get an answer from you or anyone else in these times?You have shown kindness to humanity, and that is why I write to you this day.
My best two allies have women. My spouse is recovering from breast cancer. My closest confident was just diagnosed with the same type of cancer. These two human beings are un-noticed hero’s. They let medical professionals inject cocktails of a mixture that is at best a guess if it will work.
My grandmother died from Hodgkin’s disease at 47 years old in the 1960’s, and a couple of years ago my best friend died from cancer. He never really left the hospital after his diagnosis. I will share that I would never get chemo. I must humble myself to admit this but the bravest people in this life of mine so far have been women. Women of all color and ethnic back round.
My “x” told me once “If men had to carry baby’s, instead of women there would be no more people.” She was correct.
I have two daughters, beautiful, and my youngest graduated college and has worked through college and now still at the same place for years. A job in her field will be more than difficult. Her degree is in advertising. I cannot stand to see the women I have mentioned suffer, and or struggle so much. My pancreas is shot. If I could take there illnesses on into myself and there struggles I would.
I will tell you this Oprah. When I was a child, we had a “maid.” I hate that term. We were very poor, and relatives helped with the cost of everything. The only time I ever felt safe as a kid growing up was in her arms. She happened to be black, and that should not matter. For some reason over the years color and ethnic back round have become everything, and that is a shame.
