Awesome and gutsy piece Heidi!
I strongly agree that things are changing and, as we continue to speak honestly and clearly as you are doing, they will keep changing.
Hope isn’t about pie in the sky, any more than the hope we’ll make it to our destination when we set out on a trip. We know the name of the highway: Route 42, Free Flow of Information Causeway.
Probably one of the most loving things we can all do for each other is make each other feel safe to travel that road and be careful and courteous drivers, lol. I’m really glad to see you on a roll! :D
