Wow. So good!

I just listened to the story where Rukiya interviews her son about his time in prison and the impact that had on her and the whole family. All I can say is wow. There is so much packed into this one story and the vulnerability they both showed. It’s a story that many people don’t talk about, but needs to be told. Thank you both sharing with us.
