I got this message over Facebook the other day from Noah Maier. I asked him if I could share it with everyone because it has to be the nicest note I've ever received in the many years of running Bilerico.Thumbnail image for handwritten note

Hi Bil,

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thanks. I started reading your blog at age 17, and it was instrumental in my coming out process. Now (at the ripe old age of 21) I use it as a tool for awareness. You are one of the few people who can legitimately say that they changed the world. I know you changed mine.

After a long and stressful few weeks full of jury duty for a serious criminal case, working ungodly hours to try and make up for my lost consulting work time, little sleep, the holidays, and the constant interviews with media outlets about the Salvation Army, I've been so keyed up and tired that when I got Noah's note, I broke down in tears.

Thanks Noah, for making me smile and cry just when I needed it most.
