Michelle Johnson made a farewell video after being laid off this week from Warren Buffett’s Winston-Salem Journal. She writes in her intro on vimeo.com:
After 12 years, six job titles, five desks, two phone extensions and one system logon name, it was time for me to go.
I’m incredibly grateful to a place that gave me a home and a paycheck when I needed it most, and to a group of people who 1) loved me in spite of my considerable flaws, and 2) provided me infinite opportunities to become a better journalist and a better person.
In moments such as these, all I know to do is make something. So, my beloveds, this is for you.
