The message box isn’t typically something you’d share with the public, but in the interest of education I thought I’d share mine so everyone can see what the goal of the message box is.

If you feel comfortable, please share your message box in comments below. To make it simple, just use a similar format to what I did in the Google Doc:

And I welcome any suggestions anyone has about my message box.
