*“If you don’t understand, ask questions. If you’re uncomfortable about
asking questions, say you are uncomfortable about asking questions and then
ask anyway. It’s easy to tell when a question is coming from a good place.
Then listen some more. Sometimes people just want to feel heard. Here’s to
possibilities of friendship and connection and understanding.” ― Chimamanda
Ngozi Adichie, Americana*
