Like my new friend David, I often find myself in awe at the sometimes overlooked, sheer power that blogging has to connect people. I believe in the majority of positive attitudes and mindsets that are seen scattered across this community. I believe in setting examples.

  1. You knew I would like David! How cool is he!

  2. Beautiful share, Becca.

  3. That is a really beautiful post. I didn’t appreciate the power of the blog until I started one and got to “meet” so many wonderful people. I am constantly blown away by how much of a community this actually is. We need to learn the value of free speech. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of Mr Mary. He’s a cool dude.
