First of all, thank you again for visiting our site. We believe in the strength and integrity of INDIVIDUAL American people. We love our country and want it to be as strong and healthy as possible. We believe that our representative republic works best when the representatives can hear from you.
We all have personal political beliefs but this site is not designed to promote a particular agenda. It is designed to help everyone communicate their thoughts efficiently and effectively to any representatives. As long as the words are not threatening, abusive or dangerous, we want to promote the communication.
We are a very small staff attempting a very large task, underpaid and overworking but not under appreciated. I hate sites that do not identify who is funding them or who they really are. We would love to be public in our location and our personal information but have decided to remain anonymous for the time being. Although it would be wonderful to shake everyone’s hand out in cyberspace, we should protect the safety of our staff at this time. There are a few, thankfully only a few, people who feel threatened by free speech like this site.
Please feel free to contact us with any concerns, questions or comments at any time through our email. We will attempt to read all of them and answer whenever possible or needed. There are several avenues for email correspondence on our “Contact Us” page.
On a personal note, I would like to share this story……….
When I was growing up, many mothers did not work outside the home. One day, several moms in my neighborhood decided to go to work for Colonial Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia, the restored first capital of our country.
On the first day of training, Mom came home and threw everything out of the den closet. That was where she would store her nearly 100 reference manuals that she needed to read.
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation paid these moms to read and study at home every day. In order to become an “escort”, they would need to know every single fact about the colonial capital, every date, every person’s life history, every inch of British history, every building, every occupation, every type of food, how it was prepared, every speech, you get the idea, just in case a tourist might ask a question.
As “escorts”, they began their “careers” by taking groups of 4th graders through the entire town and buildings in one day. Gradually, if an escort improved, she could aspire to take older groups and even visiting dignitaries and diplomats. Mom always said that the children were the best groups because older groups already had their minds made up about government and democracy.
She never tired of teaching everyone about the value of our country’s birth and the extraordinary sacrifices and hard work of our founders. She wanted them to know why all of us are free today and why we must protect and defend that freedom. She wanted everyone to fall in love with our country .
I was allowed to tag along with many tours and heard the stories over and over. Often, she lost her voice from talking. Although she minored in Voice in college, she began to lose her singing voice as well. A few years after leaving Williamsburg, she developed throat cancer and lost her voice completely. She lived another 21 years without her natural voice but not her smile and heart. She worked hard to tell everyone about our great country. I know she would be smiling and clapping her hands today, knowing all of us are “speaking up” to save it.
