LOUD WHISPERS: Letter To A Former Friend

My dear former friend, I hope all is well with you. I am writing this letter to you very reluctantly, but I believe that with every passing day that I cling to silence, there will be more damage done. I am conflicted because I am not sure if I should address you as ‘Friend’ or […]
