1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    I've been meaning to post this for a long time. Did you know that you can nominate someone for a Profiles in Courage award? I read the book and was inspired by the thought.

    It can be someone from any party. Any level of government -- from a city council person to the President of the United States.

    Go to the web site link and check out the criteria for nominating. There is an online submission form, but you can get very elaborate and put together a packet of information for the committee.

    I nominated someone once. This guy was local and totally someone I WOULD NOT vote for. BUT, he did ONE thing that I loved and I felt like it took a lot of courage to do it. Plus it made me laugh he had the balls to actually do it when people thought he was a nut. lol! I wish I could say more.

    Anyway, you guys feel so strongly about your people in politics, nominate them for a Profiles in Courage award. They take candidates all year long. And no matter who it is, if they are nominated, they are considered.

    Oh, I totally agree with you. But there are different types of courage. Physical courage, spiritual courage, verbal courage, etc.... Every once in a while, someone in the government does show courage and thinks independently.
