"When we were young, we used to think when we were grown up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability . . . To be alive is to be vulnerable." ~ Madeleine L'Engle, Walking on Water
For those of you who don't already know, my friend Renee Bhatti Klug has created a new community of women who share their stories of having overcome. I knew Renee in high school. I never knew her that well (she was much closer to my best friend Karla), but I was able to take a creative writing class with Renee many years ago and was very impressed with her spirit and her work. The community is called Anthem Exposition. She put out a call for submissions on FB and my essay happens to be the first one she published! I feel that Anthem Exposition is going to be a very good thing for a lot of people and I feel privileged to be a part of it.
