    Avery, this is fabulous! You don’t know me – I went to high school with your mom and saw this on her Facebook page. I’d like to ask your permission to share this with my students at Prairie View A&M. I think it’s a wonderful way to enter the discussion of language variation.

    Apple Juice: This is an extraordinary piece of writing! As a writer myself, I marvel at your nervy style and take-no-prisoners approach to what might have been a boring topic. Your words are your sword, and you wield it mightily at such a tender young age. Write on! {Hope you’re following Madison’s and Ian’s great adventures, as well.}

    How do you blow me away? Oh let me count the ways…Yet there is not enough room in this commet box to even remotely express how thoroughly impressed I am at the woman you have become. I dream of being like you when I grow up. Perhaps you’ll be the lyricist to Liam’s music. You most certainly will be the muse to many, and I consider myself to be one of them.

    Thank you for your prose, humor, intelligence, and passion for what you believe in. I can’t wait to see how you will change the world.

    With love & awe,

  • Cathy Boyd
