For Li.st

  1. We are a community, as @alligeeshow summed up so perfectly in her list
  2. And even though online friendships can seem superficial and shallow, we have all formed real and deep connections on this dumb app
  3. It's so easy to get caught up in the minutiae and arguments and differences and forget that at the end of the day, none of it matters. We matter.
  4. Another Internet community I'm involved in experienced a similar tragedy recently. It inspired an acquaintance to write this piece, which I have been holding in my heart for weeks
  5. You guys have been here for me when I'm in my dark places, even in ways you don't realize.
  6. I am smarter, stronger, funnier, nicer, and an all around better person because of Li.st
  7. Thank you for being my outlet and my friends
  8. I love you and I care about you. I really, really do
  9. We won't always agree. I won't always understand. I won't always like what you have to say. But I will listen
  10. And isn't that what this is all about anyway?
  11. My heart goes out to everyone hurting tonight
  12. And for @biz, I hope you found your peace. Thank you for being kind to me, and I'm sorry our world couldn't be what you needed. We'll hold down the fort for you
