What They're Saying About Two Fourth
I’ve seen a lot of people on here and in real life around me still not using their voice because they think this is an American issue. Keep doing what you’re doing, I’m doing everything I can to educate and stand with you too!
We’re so grateful for your advocacy work and dedication!
Sending love and strength your way girl! I have chronic Lyme disease and was really inspired by your message <3

Sending you love and light. Thank you for your post today.
I was telling my daughter about your live video the other day and what a kick you are. And she says, “Oh I know Shawn!” I love how Instagram makes the world so small!
Your doing an amazing job your advocacy work is simply amazing I like how you are not only talking about living with a chronic illness but handling the tough topics like black lives matter as well you are doing amazing
Your advocacy has been very inspirational and helpful! You speak for the quiet!
A year before my great-grandmother passed, I asked her the biggest piece of life advice from her (at the time 89) years on this Earth. Without hesitation she replied, “treat people right.” – Not only serving as the Two Fourth motto, but words I live by to this day.
