“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I chewed my nails down to a nub this week over the "This is America...we speak English" article and you know what? I got nothing but love for it.
No crosses burned in my yard.
The ground didn't shake under my feet.
No one pointed and laughed.
And while I realize saying those things make me sound like a narsasistic individual who thinks 'it's all about me' ... I'm not. I'm just a novice writer suffering from the dreaded lack-of-confidence-syndrome.
It was mostly my friends who took the time to tell me that they enjoyed or appreciated my article. I got an email and a text and some Facebook notes.
My friends weren't silent.
And it meant a lot to me.
