This blog post is going to be short. Because I don’t want you to be reading this blog post, I want you to be reading this one by Kina Grannis. Kina is someone who means a lot to me. I’ve known her for the better part of a decade. She’s basically watched my little sister grow up. Literally. Kina met my younger sister when she was in 5th grade, my sister graduates high school in a week. Kina has also always been one of the kindest souls to me since I’ve known her, and it broke my heart a million times over to read her story. I remember it was November 1, 2015 the day I realized that she was canceling her tour dates because she was stuck. I remember having a miniature celebration in a group chat when her younger sister, Emi tweeted that Kina would be returning home.
