I have placed this on my blog elsewhere, but thought it deserved a post:
"IT IS NOT THE CRITIC WHO COUNTS, NOT THE ONE WHO POINTS OUT HOW THE STRONG MAN STUMBLED OR HOW THE DOER OF DEEDS MIGHT HAVE DONE BETTER. THE CREDIT BELONGS TO THE MAN WHO IS ACTUALLY IN THE ARENA, WHOSE FACE IS MARRED WITH SWEAT AND DUST AND BLOOD; WHO STRIVES VALIANTLY; WHO ERRS AND COMES SHORT AGAIN AND AGAIN; WHO KNOWS THE GREAT ENTHUSIASMS, THE GREAT DEVOTIONS, AND SPENDS HIMSELF IN A WORTHY CAUSE; AND WHO, IF HE FAILS, AT LEAST FAILS WHILE DARING GREATLY, SO THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID SOULS WHO KNOW NEITHER VICTORY NOR DEFEAT." THEODORE ROOSEVELT
This blog is for Sarah, not me as an individual. This is for all of us who have been in the "silent majority". (as 'Pam' put it in an email supporting this cause)
"THOSE WHO STAND FOR NOTHING FALL FOR ANYTHING." ALEXANDER HAMILTON
We cannot be the silent majority any longer.
