WOW! This is an amazing piece Heather. You are a really clear writer and make you points in a strong voice. You should see if you could get this published in a bigger arena. I am curious what kind of response you have gotten. I think it is a challenge to say what you did, in that people get caught up in the idea that the threat is real. But to me, and you, if the threat is real, it is even more important not to take a reactive stance. So Bravo!
