They say everything we post here is a story — your response to this piece SHOULD be. What you’ve experienced, and expressed, needs to be read by soooo many other people. I hope you’ll turn this into a story of your very own — forget the “thank you” part about me, just put this up under a title and tell the people what you know! I’m so moved by what I just read!
