I concur. And that is a very short statement a very long response.

I think what you touched on, and what I value immensely, is the effect on the soul. I can’t support emotional bankruptcy not matter what the hell we call it. I can’t call it brave. I can’t call it empowered.

Frankly, I am sure a number of people may see this article and think me on a high horse. I’m okay with that. I’m placing judgment and so I should not be free from it.
