I say writers have to be made of teflon, stainless steel, and titanium these days. I'm so sorry you experienced this. It has happened to me too, on other media, and that's why I'm now on Medium. It's much safer here, overall. But yes, if you have something that needs to be said, it's still important to say it, bravely and out loud. If journalism is to survive, it must continue to be free and open. We can only control our reporting of what we believe to be true. We cannot control the incoming hate and anger, most of which has absolutely nothing to do with us personally. I don't know where it's coming from, but it's not going away any time soon. We have to remain strong, bullet-proof even? Or else the truth dies, discussion and debate die, democracy dies. Hang in there, Sherry. Yes, publish it.
