  1. Thank you, Justin, and all the staff at The Good Men Project, for sharing my letter to Jared and links to our other posts and blogs. This means a great deal to me/us and I’m honored to be featured on your site. It came as a complete surprise and I’m sitting in a Starbucks crying. I hope our words reach out and help someone…or many someones…

    Thank you again. This made my week.

  2. This made me cry. I don’t know why. I’m fighting to catch the tears before they mess up my mascara. Thank you for being open and speaking out. I know that your experiences and your speaking out will help others. So proud of the work that you are doing.
