Thank You Abby Phillip, Yamiche Alcindor and April Ryan!

Dear Abby Phillip, Yamiche Alcindor and April Ryan,

Thank you for your commitment to honest reporting on the White House. In spite of the verbal abuse and attempts to silence you, you persisted and asked the Trump administration tough questions to hold them accountable.

You confronted Trump on the Mueller investigation, voter suppression in the midterm elections, and challenged his divisive rhetoric and close ties to white nationalism. 

We admire your grit in the face of dismissive and demeaning language, and we appreciate your dedication to keeping the American public informed. 

In solidarity, 

Your Supporters

    When I think of what defines a life I contemplate these words in Andrea Gibson’s poem:

    When two violins are placed in a room

    If a chord on one violin is struck,

    The other violin will sound the note

    If this is your definition of hope,

    This is for you.

    For the courage it takes to be the instrument of change is not an easy path…but you bring me to hope on the days when I feel I can never do enough to bring this world to a better place. You strike the cord and we all respond. Thank you, life is never easy—- but hope brings us together. You bring us together.

    Dear Abby, Yamiche, and April,

    Thank you for the bravery you show every day is doing your job, and reporting the truth about Trump. The anger he directs at you shows his weakness. He can’t stand being around anyone who is smarter than him, so he is angry most of the time. Hopefully in 2 years (or sooner) we will have a President in the White House who will deserve our respect, and who will respect people. Please hang in there until then!
