As I said in a post earlier, I don’t really have the words to express how much the support you all have given me means to me.
It is important to remember in times like these that the goal of grand juries is to tear us apart and pit us against each other, and it is important to remember that if we are against each other, they win. It is important to remember that it is their goal to isolate the people they’ve subpoenaed. So, to go public with this and receive such an incredible amount of love and support from my friends, acquaintances and even people I have never met before, it means everything to me. It gives me so much hope, which we all know is incredibly hard to come by in this world. It assures me that I have made the absolutely right decision in seeking counsel and exercising my rights, and it makes the looming threats seem far less terrifying. It proves to me that we are capable of laying any petty differences aside and uniting together, even sometimes as strangers, against a system we all feel to be deeply flawed, which is really the most important thing we should take with us from this situation.
I really cannot thank you all enough for the support, it means everything to me. I have been crying tears of joy for the last eleven hours, and my heart is full to bursting with love, admiration, respect and thanks to and for all of you. For those of you who have donated money to help with my legal fees, I truly want to kiss you all on the mouth in a completely platonic way. For those who have re-posted my statement, who have gotten in contact with me, who have ‘like’d what I’ve said or even just taken the time to read what I had to say, I truly want to kiss you all on the mouth in a completely platonic way. I never, ever expected my feelings to be so widely received, accepted and supported, and to know that they are means the absolute world to me. I have never felt less alone in my entire life; the knowledge that I am surrounded by so many strong, smart, kind, courageous and loving people is the most comforting feeling I’ve ever known, a sense of comfort I never thought it was possible to feel so deeply. It’s so strange to say in light of my situation, but this is probably the happiest and strongest I have ever felt.
So, I really, truly, deeply, madly thank you all from the absolute entirety of my being for that, and for all you have done/are doing/are going to do for me. My gratitude is eternal and unending, and know that if our roles are ever reversed, you will receive nothing but my help, support and love in return. I am in the realest love with all of you. Thank you.
