The Great American school of freedom thought me how to live, not by enforcing me to shave my head, put a ring on my finger, a thread on my wrist, tattoos, cover my head or say “hal-le-lu-jah” but making me feel that it is time to say I love all people, some can take the heat and some can't!

My chain of tragedy started when my digestive doctor didn't find any Bug in my colon but he was able to find some piece of cookies and describe some clicking sound which is still make me feel that someone is spying on me. A warrant less wiretap was clicking on my telephone every 30 second even before I sign The Patriot Act. Unconstitutional Acts were authorizes in my constitutional State of Connecticut which contributed pain in my chain of tragedy. until this day some people change my writing , words and block my writing .
