Dear Beyond,

It’s vital, what you’re going to do. I’m a coward, but this is not a time for cowardice. The world needs people to stand up & count. Everyone around me is taking a stand.

I applause you — & will read & applaud you as well. I am active in local politics, texting our congresspeople, representatives, campaigning for local Democrats, etc, & my husband does even more, but I don’t write about politics. I’m glad that other people, do, though. Someone has to stand up to bullies & to stupidities & to all the shit in this world that just seems to rise to the top.

Thank you.
