Years ago, I received my issue of "Teaching Tolerance" and stuck to it was another person's copy.
I was thrilled to learn that there was another member of the Southern Poverty Law Center right here in Washington Court House!
I decided to deliver the magazine in person, but she was not at home. I left the magazine with a note of explanation and also quoted Emily Dickinson:
"I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody too?
Then there's a pair of us--don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know."
She called me and we have been friends and allies in causes ever since and we both say how lonely it had been before we were "meant" to meet!
