Lori Hall Steele: we're in this together

Writers, readers, musicians, audiences -- we’re all in this together, finding the unique ways to share our insights and our lives.

I’d like you to read this essay.
from the Washington Post. Lori Hall Steele wrote it about some of those insights she learned from her son, Jackson, when he was four.

Steele is a Michigan based freelance writer. Recently she was diagnosed with ALS -- Lou Gehrig’s disease. It’s gotten worse, and she’s no longer able to work, her insurance and grants from writers’ organizations have already been tapped. A group of friends, some who know her and some, like me, who have not met her, are getting the word out about her situation. Most of us who work in the arts work for ourselves. In that circumstance, when crisis strikes, it strikes your livelihood as well as your life. If you’d like to learn more about Lori’s situation and see if there are ways you could help, please go here.

We are all in this together.
