Father of a child with multiple disabilities here. Question is extremely difficult for me. Daughter is mildly retarded, uses a wheelchair, hearing impaired, dwarf. She is a happy person and lights up the whole room when she enters. We monitored her little sibling carefully while in utero, thinking if it also had same syndrome, we would abort. He was normal, and she has blossomed. This is a tight spot that can threaten a relationship. If you are a very loving and respectful person, and your partner is too, you might well weather this storm. I am tremendously happy we stayed together and raised these kids. Very stressful at times, but no regrets. PM me if you wish to discuss further.

I have done a lot of foreign travel (40+ countries in 43 years). If you want to experience other cultures in a meaningful way, take time to learn what is the norm and try to blend in. You will often be invited for tea , dinner, or even a home visit. You usually come to the understanding that we are not so different after all. When my wife and I went swimming in In North Africa and Turkey, we wore what we do in the states (neither one of us is into wearing bikinis) with no problems. To expect a group of people who are fleeing all that they have known and loved to suddenly adopt your ways is a stretch. We do not have to bend our culture. The principal's intention is to show sensitivity to these refugees, trying to lessen the us vs. them mentality and make them feel welcomed.

Mellencamp belongs in the same echelon as America's best songwriters: Dylan, Simon, Petty, Guthrie, Wonder, and Springsteen. Dozens of great songs and always with respect for the dignity of the common man.
