I still remember hounding you about lending your STBX (now just the ex) your car.

i still remember it, too. i remember other stuff you wrote, and that other people wrote, that you all probably don't even remember. all of it made an impression.

it wasn't the safes and pianos dropping from 60 floors up that finally whacked some sense into me. it was the gradual accumulation of reason and caring. like the straws on the camel's back.

i've learned a great lesson from watching you all: to speak up even when i doubt my single voice could possibly make a difference. maybe with all the voices that went before, and the ones to come, it can contribute to a change that could save a life.
