Hi Jim, this is so powerful.

We work with children in adversity, giving them access to magical storybooks to help them connect with the world. Our storybooks print on a single sheet of paper. We would love to collaborate with you and publish your story as one of our tiny little books.

It will be great to hear from you! You can reach me out at swastika@wallobooks.org

Keep writing! Keep inspiring.

"We forgot that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and now Mama’s gone to get the belt." Wow! And we all deserve it. I am with you on every point here, Jim. This is very thoughtful, and I think maybe it was a hard thing to write. You didn't leave out anything! A strong piece.
