I am super proud of the amazing work my senior citizen writers accomplished this year. My elders have taught me so much. What an honor it has been to serve them.
Rape!!! Rape is the only thing I could think about today. It's a subject I have never wanted to write about. Sometimes there are things that are too horrible to relive.
