Love is quieter than gunshots

Subject: "Love is quieter than gunshots"
 

I came across this email in my inbox the other day, and I thought I would share it with you: 
 

Message: Just stumbled across your blog post from May: http://www.pearlbates.com/hunting-magic/2017/5/24/heartful

I'm the author of the quote: https://twitter.com/asmallfiction/status/742597311411281920?lang=en

It was originally written just after the nightclub shooting in Orlando. In the coming months I was disheartened by how often it became relevant again, but at the same time touched to see the quote resurface in the context of hope and comfort.

Anyway, I wanted to reach out and say that I'm glad it found you at the right moment. And that, for what it's worth, the person who wrote it still believes it.

Best,
James
