The community we have built here is so strong …

… and so realistic. We’ve had a bunch of issues — every community does — but the fact that we powered our way through is the important part. That’s the part I think we are all going to take back with us. This is the most confrontation I’ve ever had in my life and that’s a good thing because I’ve learned to accept that people disagree and to present my ideas in a way that doesn’t disrespect or come as an attack on someone else’s.
