Thank you to the @NobelPrize  Committee for the spotlight on journalists and our battle for facts. To my friends & family, @rapplerdotcom  supporters, thank you for helping us #HoldTheLine . Please give me a few days to respond to the messages you've sent! :)

I've been getting up at 5am since April to write before beginning each day's work. It's cathartic, horrific, and very inspiring :) #CourageON  #HoldTheLine  Thanks, @hollyoven , for cover design & look forward to working together, ! @hanateraiewood
