“A hundred small papercuts of daily living perhaps”
I met Libba Bray at ALA. It was a highlight for me because I love her so: the way she speaks, the way she chooses to boldly say what needs to be said, what we need to be reminded of. Today, Libba posted about the tragedy that occurred last night in Colorado and I want to make sure as many people as possible see it. So please, go read. Words are often the tools we need to change our world, to soothe our soul, to be the balm . . .
“For today, we must be the superheroes of kindness a weary world needs.” – Libba Bray
