Brave and beautiful!

Emily, THANK YOU. This entire message (ep97) is so important; in fact I think there is no more important message out there right now than what you talked about in this podcast. I think it is amazing that you have made your stance known despite the potential for backlash. We all need to take your example and be better. Again, THANK YOU for your bravery and showing us how to beautiful on the inside too!
