Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“But real change, dramatic change can only occur with the help of others. And that is what I sought. A dramatic change. It’s not something that I dreamed up or even something that evolved over the last few years. No, it was something that I had thought about, dreamed about since a very early age, as a 4 or maybe 5-year-old at the latest. I don’t remember my age – it is irrelevant anyway; the change I dreamed off was not possible. It wasn’t possible physically, and more than that, it wasn’t possible socially. Who had ever heard of a boy wanting to be a girl? Totally ridiculous. The sissy. There must be something wrong with him. But all the same, the idea, the feelings, belonging, the overwhelming desires never left me.”

–Palm Coast resident Sarah L. Hartley, from her memoir, “Sunset: Sunrise: A Journey of Self-Acceptance” (2018).
