A Halloween Short Story Treat…

Seeing as I’m stuck at home this Halloween, I wanted to do my part for the spirit of the spooky holiday.

An open letter to Ruth Graham, I was scrolling through FaceBook this morning as I waited for my coffee to be ready, and a marginally irritating bit of idiocy passed before my field of vision.
