    I asked first lol

    But seriously, I agree this is a tremendous subject! I've taught over 1500 children, and the fulfillment from working with such families has been immeasurable!

    Chris, FYI, Vlad replied to me that he was dealing with other, more serious, stuff.

    If I'm accepted to attend, I'll certainly pass on everything to people like you after.

    I would not say that it is serious stuff. Just stuff.

    Certainly the subject matter of the seminar is much more serious.
