Many people reading this board have sent me emails in regard to living in Ukraine, it's a very popular topic. What makes a subject relevant is the number of people who share its interest, and based on the feedback I've received, I'd say the subject is VERY relevant. I'm not interested in proving anything to anyone, I have no self-esteem issues, I just wanted to share information, and countless people have thanked me for doing so. However, many people such as yourself have vented anger towards me, that's OK, if you feel the need to take out your frustrations on someone, it's probably better to chose me than your wife or kid.
I really have no idea why you're angry or feel that this dialog is an argument. I really express great surprise at the the original poster's claim that Ukraine is such a dangerous place, and especially since he's from NYC which must be 100 times more dangerous. BTW, the high school in San Jose was in a good area, pretty soon all high schools in the Bay Area will have metal detectors to screen for weapons, mainly handguns. My ability to stay here isn't because of the high price of selling my house (that money is sitting in a bank account, go Euro!!), I'm here because I worked hard all of my life, and made intelligent choices, anyone else who does the same can be here as well, something I urge you to think about.
