Suicide Survivors Club Thank you for having an article about coping with suicide in your January magazine. [YourStory, Rebecca Anderson and Laurie Phillips, MWP] I sent the article to my friend whose husband committed suicide. She is going to order the books for herself and her family. I think it was helpful for her to see someone who is a few years out able to articulate some of the feelings that she and her family went through.
Thanks again for telling us about important women's issues.

Listening as an act of rebellion As a member of Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) I have had occasions to work with Suzanne Al-Kayali. [LeaderVoice, MWP, Feb. 2017] Her essay about listening reflect this characteristic of hers, which not only makes her a most valued director of this organization, but a most dependable individual in all her dealings. WAMM is lucky to have her as their executive director.

Diverse voices I love the diversity of highlighted articles by Nausheena, Nekima, Suzanne and Tami in the "Thinking Women" e-newsletter. The essays are all great, quick-reads and all empowering. Thank you!

The view from here Tami Mohamed Brown's column is a very powerful statement. [MWP, SheSaid, Feb. 2017] It is so true in these times to be aware, present and not be afraid to jump in and get involved. Thank you for sharing.
