"Time is precious and I want to spend my time productively and purposefully. For too many years I have been caged in an arduous and expensive legal process, which has shown itself unable to protect me and my right to free speech.

In settling this case I am also choosing the freedom to dedicate my time to the work
that helped me heal after my divorce; work that exists in realms in which I feel seen,
heard and believed, and in which I know I can effect change.

I will not be threatened, disheartened or dissuaded by what happened from speaking the truth. No one can and no one will take that from me. My voice forever remains the most valuable asset I have."
