    Dear Supreme Court

    Today, you struck down 50 years of a woman’s right to choose. While it doesn’t come as a shock and I expected it would happen, it doesn’t dissuade my dismay.

    For context, allow me to beam you back to December of 1983. At a doctor’s appointment my Mother was told to abort me as the risk to her life would be great should she choose to continue her…read more

      Dear Roger,
      It is always so painful to lose someone you love who is so very close to you. Their spirit and light is always with you. I feel your pain. I have lost both my dear parents and this loss is felt every day. But I will say that I always try to live each day with purpose and happiness because I know that is what my…read more

      • @shelleybrill I have been trying to get to that point. I changed jobs 3 times since October of 2020 in an attempt to find peace at work. My current job brings me back to the industry my Father spent 42 years working in. My Mother went through a lot of hard times with him always out on the road. My Mother never got her drivers license and so going…read more

  • Dear Sean, My Heart Is Hurting

    Dear Sean,

    Our friendship began the night we met. It was August 12, 2018 in downtown Cleveland. My friends and I ended up at a table at FWD nightclub with you and your friends. Thanks to your charm, and that handsome face, we immediately clicked.

    In a short time, I realized there was so much more to you than your good looks and your sweet…read more

      First off I’m so very sorry for this loss. Sean, from everything you’ve written, was an extraordinary man. This tribute is both heartbreaking and inspiring to read. It is heartbreaking because a great man and Father was taken from this life so very soon. Reading what you’ve written is inspiring however also. It shows the profound impact…read more

    I know the place you may be in right now. Wondering if this dream you have is too hard to achieve. It may seem impossible or just not to be. Don’t ever give up, please.

    Dear Fate

    I remember this day all too well. It was June 11th 2021. My Father had just gotten the registration renewed on his car. I suggested that we go to Cleveland to scout out the gate for the baseball game I was taking hime to for his birthday.

    As we neared Cleveland on route 480, a car clipped my Father’s rear bumper. It forced us into the car next to…read more

    To Teens Struggling

    Dear Teenagers,

    Like you I know what it’s like to struggle. I was there and on some levels still am. I struggled majorly with self confidence as a teenager. I felt as though I wasn’t going to be able to be what I wanted to be in life.

    For me two people in high school were instrumental to helping me change that. The first was my high school band…read more

    • This is a great message to teens, Roger. There’s comfort in knowing that we aren’t the only ones who struggled with confidence in our teens, even though it would have been great if we didn’t have those struggles. I’m glad you had two people who helped you with your confidence. I wish I had someone like that to help me like that in my teens. My…read more

      Your letter hit me very hard. I’m there right now. 15 years ago my Mother passed away and the empty space still remains. It feels like you wrote my own letter and reversed everything.

        Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your difficult childhood. You are a wonderful person and I am sure you were a very sweet child. Your father was probably a victim of some kind of abuse from his parents. He must have been a angry man who vented that anger by subjecting his children to the sane abuse he endured.

      Hi Telina. I’m Jim. How are you? I hope all is well. I read your letter. I thought it was very impressive and well written. It had to be rough losing your father at an early age- regardless how he was towards you. And to hear your mom say she didn’t love you and your siblings ? That had to be rough. I’m sorry about that.…read more

        I appreciate you taking the time to read my letter. I am doing great to answer your question. I hope you are also doing well.

    Don’t be so hard on yourself or push people away because of fear of getting hurt. Don’t allow others to make you doubt how beautiful and strong you are.
