I sent it in last night. And I love feedback. I can use it for the future!
Yeah, it is long. I didn't find any guidelines for letters to the editor on their website and they've published some pretty long ones. I included a note to the editor acknowledging the length and asking that it be published as is or with the "blessed are..." lines taken out-if needed.
I hope they publish it!
I am committed to a world that works for everyone and no one or nothing is left out.
