Emma and I discussed yesterday’s post and I asked her what she thought of the way I’ve described her as an “unreliable speaker.” I haven’t liked how negative that sounds, though I have meant it more factually, and was not suggesting anything beyond those exact words. She wrote, “Yes, unreliable. Mostly talking other words even though not what I think.”
We discussed the comments many have written about believing her and how today is, for many, a day celebrating gratitude. I told her how grateful I was to be able to communicate with her. She told me I could post some of what she wrote in response…
“Decade of ignorance dead. Deny ideas of intelligence can directly minimize the amount of self-worth one feels. I am grateful many are believing in me.”
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
