An Open Letter to the Men in My Life
Rachel Drane

Dear Rachel,

You are not quite alone in your plea my friend, so please do not give up on your good fight. Applause is easy to offer in this venue, but a few chosen words of acknowledgement and encouragement are another level again. It may seem an odd quirk to write in response, that I have listened (read) you before and will continue to enjoy “listening” to you as I read more. So be encouraged my friend, to know that your audience is wider cast than you might imagine, and the harvest for you may yet prove more bountiful than you might hope. :)
