"I want you to feel safe here. I don't care how you voted. I only hope you did. I don't care where you came from. Or what color you are. I've certainly never cared about who you're sleeping with or which bathroom you want to use. It boggles my mind that people do. But that's just the way it is.
What I do care about is this: you.
I love what we share together: a community over the written word.
I believe that reading and being together over the written word is a great way to reach out to each other. It's what gets me up every day. Especially on the days when I don't want to get up....
Whatever we decide to talk about, act on, or broadcast going forward, let's make a promise to each other to do so with grace.
I am giving thanks for your presence in my life today."
