@coadg @MakeImagiroo your summary, including the team is great. Too many want to distill this to a @LilyBorn lone hero story"A hero is one who knows how to hang on one minute longer." -- Novalis, German poetYou can treat politics like a dirty word, but truth is, it's everywhere, with lovers and family and friends, you have to acknowledge it.
