A.J., you have captured exquisitely what it means to be a member of Medium. Medium is a miracle. It is cathartic, therapeutic and inspirational. It is one of only two places I have encountered where honesty is a primary virtue; here we get to celebrate our commonalities and our differences. We get to learn from each other and about each other, and it seems to me our disagreements are almost always without rancor.

Nothing makes me feel more like a human being and more hopeful than spending time here with all of you.
