“Let no one be discouraged by the belief that there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world’s ills — against misery and ignorance, injustice and violence… Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation…”
–Robert F. Kennedy

Now that I’m getting more familiar with the “blogosphere”, I thought I should share some of my goals regarding this blog in particular.

1. I hope to update the blog daily so people have something new to read every time they visit. I don’t know about the rest of you…but I hate it when I check out a blog and realize they only update it every couple of days. I usually don’t bother returning. An active blog attracts readers. And the more that people are thinking and talking about Theresa…the better our chances of keeping the momentum going.

2. I hope that whatever I post will generate some discussion and feedback. I’ve already accepted the fact that I’m not going to please all of the people all of the time…so my only concerns are that whatever I post is accurate, relevant and doesn’t cause hardship for John and his family.

3. I hope that each person who reads this blog understands that each of us has the ability to change the outcome of Theresa’s case. Whether you’re asking questions…combing through dusty documents or simply offering encouragement…you’re making a difference. Never think that what you have to offer isn’t appreciated or isn’t important. It is.

I’m not sure how this blog will unfold in the days and months to come. I don’t know what format it will take….whether it’s polls, musings, statistics or news, I just hope that whatever I post will keep you coming back. And again, if there’s something you want to know, write a comment. I bet there’s someone out there who will have an answer.

Thanks for your patience. Let’s see what tomorrow holds!
