Erin Palette shared something of a serious and monumental nature about herself. As I expected to find, she has been overwhelmingly supported by our community. I am delighted to say that I share in that support.
Truth of it is that since I myself was welcomed into this pro-2A community some handful of years ago, I've found this to be the most accepting, monolithically welcoming and respectful group of which I've been a part. Our family encompasses a very wide community of people from different political and social strata, and is handily the most erudite and intelligent group of people I've encountered. [here I'm looking meaningfully in the direction of Theater and Literature departments] In other words, this group is a great working model in celebration of diversity, and I've never seen this massive tent fail to welcome someone genuine who comes in honesty and good spirit. I LOVE OUR FAMILY!
Erin brings a singular energy and zest to the party which has enlivens discussion and promotes debate with much wit and joviality. I'm very proud of our community for embracing her, and-- again-- I stand by her, too. And I'm proud of her for trusting us to take her at heart-value. Trust and acceptance goes both ways, and our community is honored when someone feels they can be open and vulnerable here. I think it says a great deal about us, and it most assuredly says a great deal about Miss Palette. Huzzah!
