Thank you Will Smith For Standing By Your Woman

A letter to Will Smith.

When I met my late wife, she already had alopecia, but despite that, I saw a beautiful soul and heart that far outshined a woman with only a few strands of hair and otherwise bald.

I fell in love through my admiration of a woman who was so confident and comfortable with herself that she could go out in public, despite her appearance.

Mr Smith, I know how you feel, and I admire you for the courage you had to go on stage at such an event and defend your wife, who you clearly love very much.

Mr Rock, I condemn you for being so heartless as to insult and attack a woman with an illness that she can do nothing about. As you know, women take great pride in their hair, and this is a woman who, despite having lost something that women are highly regarded for as an aspect of their beauty and femininity, would support her husband and attend such a globally televised event.

To all women of the world, how would you feel to be heckled because you are holding hands or hugging the man you love in public because passers-by thought you are a gay male couple? Or, when you show your passport or photo ID, the person thinks you are a man. Just think about that, and then I expect that there is not a single woman in the world who would not side with Mr Smith for his actions but rather feel his love and devotion.

I say to Mr Rock and all of the world who condemn Mr Smith for his actions that although I wish no harm or illness to anyone, I do wish for anyone who feels Mr Smith was wrong to know the pain and suffering of seeing someone you love so dearly go through an illness.

As with my late wife, this illness could even lead to her death, so knowing that there is nothing you can do about it but see that person suffer is a helpless situation.

When you feel the pain that Mr Smith and I, and many others have felt, you should be the one apologizing, not just to Mr Smith, but more so to his wife.

She is the woman you should learn from, and the world should take inspiration from, to put her ego aside and be there to support her husband.
