Today I've watched the heartfelt work of a group of kossacks hit the rec list and roll off almost immediately.
Extremely saddening was in the last few hours. ASiegel's, "48forEast Africa: Shadows ... Out of Sight, Out of Mind ...
He hits it right on target here:
These 'others' are starving out-of-sight and certainly out-of-mind of most Americans as we focus on the political soap operas and, more typically, soap operas like Glee.
It’s not a secret that there’s a beehive of back channel communication among kossacks that would put the most complex and largest of beehive communities to shame.
Now is the time to use that.
Alan Grayson, icebergslim, ericlewis0, slinkerwink, teacherken, nyceve, ministryoftruth, theses are just a few of the many kossacks who have the network to shoot diaries to the rec list and keep them there. I am imploring all of you that are listed hereon a regular basis to please spread the word about this blogathon.
800,000 children are expected to die in the weeks to come.
That has to be more important than any single pet political issue we have.
It's important enough to me to challenge this community to care enough to get Adam's diary back on the rec list and donate.
From now until bluejerseymom posts in the morning, we will match every dollar donated, up to $500.01.
This is a giant leap from what I had intened to post, but it is from my heart. Please share a piece of your heart with a rec, tip, comment, donation, whatever you can.
