Comment from one reader: Spoken with more courage than a true journalist. Fantastic. A tremendous risk you took in confronting these people (racists, homophobic, bigots, haters). The ending is extraordinary. Where you mention it only takes 4 million dollars to buy congress. Extraordinary. Hasan, you took a risk being so poignant with these people but your voice is extremely important. You have humanized the argument.

Connie’s comments: We forgive you racists and haters. Let’s save lives.
