I thought the piece moved very well… Thornton is one incredible woman, a true Phoenix rising up from adversity only to shine brighter than before.
the piece really covered the topic well from a local level thru its global impact. Thornton’s interest in the future of aquaponics has obviously set you up for a sequel!
