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.
