Just Saying Thanks

Alright readers, I’m gonna level with you. I am completely overwhelmed by the response to Tuesday’s article, “Remember to Remember“.

As I write this the article has been read over 23,000 times in just two days. For context, most of the other articles that I’ve published come in at around 1,000 reads currently.

The really cool thing is that I know the staggeringly high number of reads has very little to do with my writing style, and almost everything to do with the fact that so many people have so much respect for the memories of loved ones lost.

I’m honored to have been given the chance by Emily O’Rourke to promote the memories that so many hold so dear.

Thank you.
