Hi Julian,
Colette Clarke Torres


How nice to hear from you. I would not have had any idea that my story was your first on Medium. I feel honored.

I hope you are continuing to be rewarded by the reading and writing experience on Medium. I check in with it periodically but other demands keep me away sometimes.

Fortunately, I haven’t had to write about anything quite so troubling as my son being held up at gunpoint. I’ve been able to occasionally share some of my writing on other insecurities and sometimes sunnier topics.

My son is doing OK. Still working that same job, to my chagrin. I now live nearly 700 miles away from him so I miss him all the time. I will be seeing him soon, which will only be the second time since the incident that I’ve had him in my eyesight and in my arms.

It’s nice to know you’re out there.
