  3. Dear Xena and friends,

    Words alone don’t do justice to how people felt, elated yet determined. I heard several peoples talking about what they planned to do to follow up.This is a movement. To be a party to this, we were asked to text 40649 and then to type the word, Women.

    Hugs, Gronda
