Everybody Sees the Ants, p.20A. S. King
I owe thanks to the usual suspects. My family—Mom, Dad, Robyn, Lisa and the whole extended crew for your support. And Topher, love—how do I thank you? Let me count the ways. My friends—a bow of gratitude to Krista, my superhero, and to Christine and Maria, who introduced me to the V-Day movement. Without you (and Ed) this book would not be. All other friends know who they are and should assume this sentence is for them. My fans—to every one of you who has written to me, come to see me at signings, or spread the word. And to the amazing educators, booksellers, librarians, teachers and bloggers who have supported my work, thank you so much.
To my fellow kindness ninjas who help without saying a word—thank you. I see you. Do you see me?
