Mission Statement to be debated @millionaidsmarch.org
« on: February 06, 2007, 06:54:45 PM »
Any person who presents a mission statement that inspires others will be read and critqued, in order to present a unified thought process.
My main focus has been to expand the Ryan White Funding, because it is being whittled away with each year that passes, but an answer could be a citizen agreed, health access program.

I feel no special need to pontificate about each subject, as I have voiced a profound need for both. Even I understand that the bottom line will be to make a far less answer "in the interest of others".

We have to start somewhere.

I cannot tell you how grateful I am, that this wonderful place is even here. This place has helped me to voice little, by little, my real thoughts and feelings.

Were it not for this space, we may have never known each other.
Were it not for this place, we might never have made these endless friendships(predicated on our individual shelf lives).

I am faltingly, attempting to send out a new national call for something so basic that it sounds so petty in the broad scope of the issue, but is yet the great devide in American society.

I want to have a real national vote on our society stepping forward, and speaking clearly to our government leaders that we want health care reform in a major way.

How many of us need to be heard to even raise it as an issue.

I am of strong conviction in the belief that we are still being treated as biblical lepers, in the 21st century.

How sad.
I ask a unifying statement that addresses these issues/themes.
