BG Gives Thanks

Yesterday WNBA star Brittney Griner took to Instagram to give thanks and gratitude to the public. In a handwritten letter Griner wrote, “Thanks to the efforts of many, including you, I am home after nearly ten months. You took the time to show me you cared and I want to personally take the time to say that your effort mattered…Because of you I never lost hope.” She continued on to say, “Your letters were also bigger than uplifting me. They showed me the power of collective hands. Together we can do hard things.” Britney ended the letter with “Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I hope your holiday season is full of joy and love.”
