Gloria Siren Lisa Lanser Rose wrote this dog story, “flash nonfiction” that appears in this month’s Word Riot. It is powerful and understated. You can read it or hear Lisa read it.
If you’re already grateful for your Valentine, you’ll be much more grateful after you read what happened to my friend Julia Connolly on the night before Valentine’s Day, 1974. Feel free to share, repost, reblog, and print out and mail to your daughter/niece/granddaughter.
