13. Thanks!

I like to think that I give people hope. I also am hoping that this helps to get people more confident in their ability to institute meaningful change -- and to become more actively involved.

Years ago, my friend Rubin taught me that people tend too often to look for "leaders" to assist them in accomplishing such things. This, the Good Hurricane said, was because the goodness of Truth had not fully taken root within them, and so they doubt their own strength. They do not recognize the full Power of Ideas.

When I'm in that community -- even just picking up the group's mail at the Post Office, or going into a store there -- I'm surprised by the number of people who approach me to discuss this epidemiology. While I know all too well that I'm just an average person, many of them are projecting, for lack of better words, a leadership role upon my person.

My opposition, of course, continues an attempt to discredit that. Fine with me, so long as their gossip keeps folks talking about the health study! But more, my goal is to encourage others to be their own "leader."
