This my visit to #Elmwood Cemetery as I write for this platform today. This keeps me stable as I put to press words that give me courage to step away from the hostile words and deeds of this present time. I am working on a #HelloConversations presentation and question # 15 asks “If only one story is told at your memorial service, who should tell it?
