**Not posting this bc I’m upset. I promise!**
Seeing responses like this is why I continue to share my story and the power of taking the high road. I’m beyond thankful for the community of people who show how simple it is to be kind and educate rather than be hateful and fight fire with fire. For sure a happy moment for me!
