It is time to come out of the closet ladies and gentlemen, I am a list person. And not simply in the to do list, or the grocery list sort of way, no, I’m the type of person who will write something down simply to cross it off as it has already been completed.
With this in mind I have yet another confession to make, I have been most delinquent with my blog posts since school started back up again in September. Buried in checks and cross outs, I somehow forgot to add a blog post to my do list. Though first and foremost I’d like to thank my fellow abortion gangers for their forgiveness, it has also given me a surprise realization.
How could I forget such a thing? With email chats filling my inbox each day it would seem nearly impossible to miss, but I think that’s exactly why it did skip my mind. Through this incredible online community we’ve created, I already feel connected to abortion access activism on a daily basis. I get to hear about all the amazing work the gang is doing every day and have a pulse on the ups and downs of the action, leaving me with (almost) no need to vent my frustrations to the universe.
So this short but sweet post is dedicated to my new favorite list, the abortion gang listserv. A list that provides everything a good list should, structure, priorities, details, goals, and even on those rarest of days hope and a good laugh.
