Thank you for giving the proper credit due the author of the essay I posted. I just wanted to make sure that you understood that I was in NO way trying to take ANY amount of credit for his essay. Having come across it in an anonymous email, I felt that it was an important and heartfelt piece that, brilliantly written, deserved to be seen by as many people as possible. As a writer, I understand the importance of copyright protection and that was why I made a point of asking for help in determining the proper author.
