Like you

I had doubts about religion in Elementary School but, in some ways like yourself, I didn’t call myself an Atheist until much later. I value your speaking out about religion in all the ways you do because until I heard someone say it out loud I always felt wrong. I struggled to find my way back to belief but never quite could. I am finally grateful for that.
