of getting up the courage to write a piece for opednews about three years ago that has lead me to being in an important and contentious race for Mayor of my small town. I wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't for my participation here. Thanks Rob...more later
When you realize that the darkness is beginning to turned around and that even though the light is dim we are at the beginning of a new time, and when you realize that you yourself have played a key role in defending truth and beauty, and have tried to your utmost to turn things around, it is time to celebrate.
Congrats to opednews.com for playing the role it has played, congrats first of all to Rob for his unselfish work, congrats to all the editors and writers and readers and commentors.
It has only been a few years ago that I first got an article on opednews.com It was for me so incredible I shook with the excitement of it. Today I need to take a break from it all. But for all that I am deeply grateful for the adventure that writing for opednews.com has been.
