  1. So much love for you Maysoon! You are funny, charming, likeable, and dare I say "inspiring"!  Every thing I've watched with you, you come across as a person that would be so much fun to chum around with. Bless you, keep on keeping on, you are AMAZING.

  2. Hi Maysoon! Just saw you on "Deep Shift with…" and I HAVE to tell you that you are a WONDERFUL person. You are a person of great strength and a true force for goodness. You and people like you give all of us hope and renewed faith in our fellow human being. What you went through with the cyber bullying and how you overcame that reminds me of the saying that "Fire turns iron into steel." Thank you for using your time, your celebrity, your LIFE for the betterment of life itself. I hope to see you one day at a comedy club here in the L.A. area. Best wishes, much love and respect – Frank

  3. I wish my good friend Marko could have heard you and realized how great life can be and that the only disabilities we have are those we create ourselves.  You go, and may you keep on going for a very long time!!
