I have not been with you the entire five years, but I am glad I found you this last year. Thanks, George, for pointing me in the right direction, and congratulations on your award. This helps show that WAR writers know what they are doing, and should be listened to. Amy, keep highlighting authors of all colors, shapes and types. After all, we are all writing about the same thing – life. And our lives are not so different once we get past the artificial wrappings. We dream, we fear, we love, and we live. That is what I see in all the writers, illustrators and activists you have highlighted. Keep up the good work and I’ll keep reading and believing.

    And Beverly, congratulations to you, too, on all the great work the Laredo Food for Thought Foundation is doing in Laredo, Texas. You’re certainly supporting the WAR effort there!

  2. Thanks for the constant reminders and the beams of hope you provide.
    Happy 5 years.
