I am a processor. I am a thinker. I rarely react emotionally. If you know me, that last statement may make you laugh. When I’m being attacked, it takes a long time for me to get to the point wherein I will lash out or take action to defend myself. I grew up always tryingContinue reading “Charlottesville”
