The Power of One.

Hello friends.  I'm sure you've had plenty of moments in recent months when you've been discouraged at the political and environmental circumstances in which we find ourselves; I know I have.  Before I began this blog a year and half ago, I was horrified, frustrated, and scared by story lines that seemed more appropriate for science fiction novels than the reality in many of our own backyards.  "I'm one person," I thought.  What the heck can *I* do?

And then by chance I came across the Edmund Burke quote which graces the banner of my blog:  "Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little."  That quote gave me the inspiration to start this little blog.  Over the past several months, its Facebook audience has grown to nearly 2000 people who have been brought together over a common concern.  Still, I'd become discouraged of late.  And as the universe always seems to throw you what you need when you need it, I thought I'd share what was thrown my way tonight. Never underestimate the power of one person to affect change!
