    Dear Dick & Sharon,

    I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your kind words and friendship. You and LA Progressive are critically important to our activist community. You’re performing an incredible service and I appreciate you letting me be part of the LA Progressive family.

    I’m thrilled this piece was widely read because it was written as a testament to the great work of the Occupy Movement. There’s nothing that pleases me more than singing the praises of the compassionate energized people who make this movement happen.

    On a personal note, as you both know this is my first article in exactly a year. For all of 2011, I was in a battle with Stage 4 Lymphoma. I stopped writing but continued to teach my morning and evening classes throughout my treatments. Although I shared this with you, I kept it private from our community. Now I’m in remission, retired from teaching and back again as an activist and participatory journalist. Needless to say, your kind words and support mean the world to me. You’re incredible friends and I thank you sincerely for ALL you do.

    Much love,
