Let me first say, thank you.
This open letter hasn’t had an easy life. It started out as nothing. The bills were piling up. Family and friends had lost faith in its ability to get done.
And slowly with the help of a few good samaritans like yourself, it’s blossomed into the series of words that you’re reading right now.
You saw this open letter hitchhiking around on the information super highway and instead of driving past it, you stopped and you gave this little open letter a chance. Counted out by so many, this open letter had no one to turn to, and you stepped up.
You didn’t clap for my super un-athletic kid playing sports. You didn’t pay for my expensive Starbucks drink which, let’s be honest, I only get on the slight chance someone in front of me will pay for it. And you didn’t leave me a smile as a tip, which my student loan officer continues to refuse as payment.
The truth is, you didn’t have to click on this open letter at all. And you didn’t have to read this open letter, which thanks you for reading this open letter you didn’t have to click on. But despite the adversity placed in your path, you forged ahead and proved that you did read this open letter.
It’s not a perfect open letter, and will never claim to be. And yet, like people, that’s what makes open letters great, the imperfections. But you know what is perfect? Your curiosity.
