WOW. I hit the milestone. It took me almost 20 years to get to this point.

From mistakes I made I have lost a few DU friends. Saying I'm sorry probably won't reestablish friendship with those many DUers. I am sorry for the mistakes I've made. There have been too many to list.

High points for me on the DU include sharing my diagnosis for dementia several years ago. I'm still going strong. Having the Labor Group named after me. Raising $2.4 million for Biden/Harris 4 years ago. Lots of nature pictures I used to post. Being a long time host. Meeting Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff and talking about the DU. You get the idea. Feel free to add to this list.

I doubt I'll have another 20 years on the DU. That doesn't mean I won't try.

In solidarity,

OS

#### duhneece

(4,202 posts)You have a most generous spirit.

What you did for me in a red, red ‘Cowboys for Trump’ red county helped me inspire others to run when we’d had no Democrats run for any local office in 20+ years.

What you’ve done for DU will have ripples of courage, faith and more for people we may never know.

Thank you beyond gratitude
