Feature Friday: A Letter to Nell's Fans
I read TKAM and I came away with the one fact...the world is not fair. It's not black or white, right or wrong. People do terrible things to good people and sometimes they won't pay the consequences. Not to get too deep, but it me question my own ideals, values and religion. Every time I read the book I measure myself in a way. I am a thinker, a worrier, a planner, and I express myself in words and writing. I write because it frees my thoughts. I choose to be an outsider and peer at the world in many lenses. I know some people see it as hiding or not living my own life...but I love stories and being around them and telling them...it's my thing. Whether anyone reads them or not my words are out there...I am out there. That is what Lee has given me through her writing...a purpose that is just my own. With my grandmother's death three years ago this month, I have let go of the "must be" for the "I am". Ms. Lee might be gone but for me she will never be forgotten. I hope she has found peace and is with her beloved sister.
