Hey Lady! YOU may not remember me, but you were one of the rudest people I have ever come in contact with. Vitiligo was a very hard time in my life and the train was one place where everything felt worse! Well lady, you sat next to me and felt the need to check your hand, turn it up and down, and compare your hand to mine. Your hand is stone white without a mark and my hand is spotted, due to my Vitiligo. It was four stops before you stopped, and you just missed getting back slapped - by my spotted hand! So lady on the train, I want you to know that I have risen above the ignorance of people like you in this world because I am More Than My Skin! Had you said hello, you might have learned that about me.
