I can do this, but what's the backlash? ...what's going to happen? I want to share this, it's a dream project—everyone is going to hate it... And, this felt even better—it made me feel this love from Atlanta. It kept me going. It reminds me everyday, that that curiosity, if it's true, if it's really speaking to you...that I felt that love, that I felt the embrace and I will always be grateful. — Karen Anderson
