Michele, I want to thank Jk Mansi for leading me to your story. Thank you for all that you and others like you do. But, thanks are not enough — not close to enough. We need a government that prepares for the worst and hopes for the best while supplying and protecting its first responders. You need and deserve so much more than you are receiving. It’s criminal.

With all that said, your story was astounding, brave, and heartbreaking.

As Juhi requested, I am tagging others here so they won’t miss this.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
