I urge you to rethink this. Your stories ARE how you connect. And in this time of turmoil, I think it is more important than ever that you keep telling them. Seeing each person as both an individual and as part of this beautiful swirl of humanity we call America IS how we get through this.

Keep writing what you write. Also, read what others write. People of different colors, and religions, and experiences. How else do we learn about each other?

How else do we learn how to do better by each other?

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
