4. 'we have to do more than demonstrate'

One of the reasons that I began to participate in political debates and advocacy was the realization that there is a myriad of opportunity to influence the political process and in the advancement of my ideals into action or law. Alas, . . . I am inextricably hobbled by the (deliberate) indiscretions of my youth (and some of my adulthood) in seeking a more public role in all of that, but I've taken advantage of every opportunity that I'm able, because I can see and understand what a collective effort it takes to elevate those ideals and an even greater collective effort to make them a reality.

So, it is with admiration and great interest to see and hear of the progress you are making toward representing your ideals in a decidedly more personal and accountable way. That is, I'm certain, a reflection of your own integrity and character.

I very much agree that our advocacy needs to have a legislative focus, if it is to amount to more than just argument, or even agreeing among ourselves. So, I very much appreciate your emphasis on affecting the legislative process through direct personal involvement and accountability and wish you the very best in your state and region.

Many inspiring and significant debates - and political and protest actions - as you know well, have come out of your state and region of the country. Must be the exposure to an abundant amount of sunshine, or, maybe in the water!
