First, thank you for the compliment. I feel so blessed that my words have impacted your life. I’m gonna miss you, and I’m printing this out before you leave so I can cherish it. This piece means a lot to me.

I totally understand you needing to leave Medium to make your ends meet and get your life back on track. Hardship builds character and you’re going to make a wonderful educator. We need more people in the world who can experience life then use that experience to help the less fortunate. I’m rooting for you.

Come back when you get situated and give me an update. I wanna know what’s happening in your world.

Be safe. Be well.

Take care,
