No small group, like no individual, can do everything at once. I am sure the staff are overwhelmed between debriefing from the E Ride, to the ex-gay survivors' conference coming up in the next 2 weeks, to planning & organizing another nationwide action in the fall.
I personally would love to see more public interest and outcry about the deliberate lies that are being told about the legislation currently pending. I don't have a blog or website that I can use to notify people. Would like to help get the word out, and think I have done about all that I can, individually, at this point.
Perhaps those with the inclination can organize local rallies in support of the legislation, and include a few public speakers at their rallies to educate about what the bill does and does NOT contain. Anyone out there with organizing know-how?
Troy - your new site looks quite good.
Bravo to you for having so much wonderful initiative to share your caring and love with your whole community that way. I'm glad you enjoy the poem - - it really speaks to me too, which is why I set it up as a signature. Every time I read it, it is like a reminder of so much that is important. So much power in our associations - -don't waste our energy on things that dont' produce any good. Love is such a powerful force; it can heal so much.
