An Open Letter to Dr. Ford

Dear Doctor Ford,

I'm sorry that you've put yourself through so much, and now it seems like he's going to get away again. I know it seems as if you did it all for nothing.

It was not nothing. 
What happened to you wasn't nothing, and what you bravely did was not nothing.

You have helped so many (of all genders) find their voices. You've shown strength, grace and true patriotism.

Thank you. 
Thank you for doing what others could not today by putting country above your own comfort.

I see you. 
I believe you.

With love, respect & empathy,
me.
