June 16, 2017: Dear Brandon, I read your story and it just made me feel very sad. I don't know much about this site or what being an ally is but I had to write you to let you know that wherever you go in life, you deserve happiness and you will have people who will love and care for you. I know it's cheesy and overused but I truly believe it, I think you are very precious and all the hardships that you went through, and are still going through, are going to make you the better person you are today. I wish I had any money to donate but all I can send you are virtual hugs and a promise that you'll always have a friend in me. I don't know if you believe in god or not but I think I do and I will be praying for you today. All the love, Soha.
