Or, rather: only one link today. But it’s the single best thing I’ve read all week.
The tiniest of excerpts:
The back of my throat hurts. I can only give blood
once every three months, and even then it takes a while
to find a vein. What I’m trying to say is,
I don’t have an agenda. I just want to live.
What I’m trying to say is, listen to us,
but it will never happen until someone who matters
says it first.
