I have an answer.
I just don't share it.
Even now my heart thumps. Hook it to a sub-woofer and the windows would rattle. BOOM. BOOM. BOOM.
I began writing Strong Enough to get the babbling out of my head. After the first disastrous draft, I set it aside without an ending and returned to observing.
Until I found a cause. Something lacking within story.
Who choose abortion.
Over 50 million abortions have happened since Roe vs. Wade but in most movies or novels she keeps the baby.
Abortion is a topic with T-n-T strapped to its chest. Some want to fist-pump it. Others want to abolish it. While in the vast middle, millions of women sit before TVs or books and wonder, "Am I alone?"
Whitney walks in these women's shoes. She tells their private story that is neither left nor right. She holds their hand and tells them, "I understand."
And now for a song. Hat-tip to author Suanne Bierman Laqueur for this special gem and its fabulous place in High Fidelity.
DJ Whit approves.
Just a taste of "Dry the Rain" by the Beta Band
