For our first guest post I have chosen a piece by my husband, Dana Andrew Benjamin. He wrote it just about a year ago, during a Portland cold snap that has been far outdistanced by the snowpocalypse of 2017. This year's freeze, however, is what has prompted me to select this piece.
As my husband so eloquently expresses, it is simply kindness that we need. Extending kindness to the damaged and struggling members of our community creates a space within which those people can be heard.
