Maybe they thought they'd offend me or make me feel bad. Maybe they didn't want to deal with an awkward situation if I'd feel embarassed. Maybe they didn't even notice, but I doubt it. It was a pretty huge hunk of black pepper.
On that note I want to thank the people who had the humanity to give me some really honest feedback about my latest "Person of the Week" article. As hard as constructive criticism can be to hear, sometimes it's the only way we'll ever know another perspective.
Because of their feedback I've decided to change a few things.
First, I'll be doing a "Person of the Month" article rather than a "Person of the Week". With my busy schedule there's just no way I can keep up with a weekly person.
Second, I realized that telling Katherine's story just wasn't enough. It left some readers feeling emplty and helpless. I've decided to provide a way for readers to reach out and contribute.
Third, I realize that many people want to know more about Katherine and how things are working out for her. Throughout the month I plan to have periodic updates and information so that readers feel informed and uplifted.
Fourth, I recognize that my writing skills could use some improvement so that the flow of the article is more fluid and congruent.
Katherine's story inspired people, but it also may have left them feeling flat with no way to give back. Because of this I'd like to provide a link to the Susan B. Anthony Project's donation page. http://www.sbaproject.org/donations.html I also plan to contact their office and find out if there are other ways readers can help out this month in honor of Katherine.
