This is a work in progress… these are just my thoughts and you can say whatever you want. It won’t hurt my feelings. It’s already version 2 as I made some changes based on new information since making the first draft a week and a half ago.
Just for the record this isn’t what I “want” to happen or even what I think “makes sense”, rather, it’s what I believe will happen based off of various small pieces of information I’ve received, researched and read. Enjoy and feel free to give some feedback.
