Next Letter in the Mail: Mensah Demary


Our next Letter in the Mail comes from Mensah Demary! Mensah writes about not surrendering hope, but instead clinging to it to remain sane in these anxiety-filled times. “There is no human endeavor without hope. Even as I write, I hope to find you home, safe, able to read my words, open to revolt.”
