isn't valid. This is why I've always identified with handicapped people,
people of other persuasions, non-sighted people, even people who speak
a different language or are of a different culture and are out of their

I've identified with black culture being so alienated in the U.S.; Indian
culture, any culture that is the outsider.

I haven't prayed for a while, but I pray for a really good job so I can
get my life back on track.
