I love it when people tell their story in a clear and articulate manner. I'm saddened when the perception is one that leads to the conclusion Ricky Gervais arrives but this is real life for the majority, not the minority. If Ricky were a new acquaintance or your child's friend from school what would you say to him? He could have a place at our families table but it would be frightening with my four young kids. Would we have a grand conversation or be more like his mom shushing him to change the subject? Our kids will share meals with the Ricky's of this world. Are they ready?
