anonymous comments no longer welcome.

I would like to apologize to my blog followers, and regular blog checkers for the comment that somebody anonymously posted on a video of my son.  While I am infuriated at the remark, I am not surprised that the cowardly comment was left anonymously.  I invite anybody who has a question, remark or even a disagreement about the content of my blog to freely leave comments.  HOWEVER, I would expect that comments are left with respect and some sort of maturity.  If not, they will be deleted.  Racial or demeaning remarks are not welcome on my blog.  Unfortunately, I feel that I can no longer allow anonymous users to leave comments.

Additionally, all readers should be made aware that I do my best to maintain some sense of control and reason in my life.  As a mother, I cannot promise that I will maintain either control, or reason, when it comes to nasty, hateful or derogatory comments made toward/about my children.  While I often view it as a responsibility to educate others on racial sensitivity, I feel a much greater responsibility to beat senseless the person who dares to cross my kids.

Thank you and good day.
