Your criticism is spot on. I’m a digital media novice, but what I’ve learned so far is that the value of these spaces comes in hearing various perspectives and piecing them together to make a sensible stance. I can’t envision the piece I wrote as even coming close to wholeness in the absence of your insightful comments. I loved Shannon’s piece, and I thank you for recommending it. Clicking a heart seems an inadequate gesture to signify my respect for the ideas you’ve raised, but that’s what I’ll do because it’s the only option afforded to me here. I’d like your voice in my life, so I will also “follow” you as well. I hear the frustration and anger that you, very rightfully, feel. Thank you for speaking and acting for justice. We all need your voice now more than ever.
