Thank you for your support of the Walk For Healthcare (@walk4healthcare & on FB). We are at a critical point in the walk, more than halfway, building momentum, regular local media coverage at every town I walk through. But this walk would not be possible without your help – moral, organizational, and financial.
Please know that your supportive notes are much valued. Walking twelve (or more) hours a day AND hearing tales of despair & misery is not easy. Your support gives me strength to continue. And the stories that I share with the wider world --- on Twitter and on the blog also compel me to continue. It has been a privilege to be able to share these stories. And share I must because healthcare is about people and the voice of the people is what Congress must hear rather than the cash-laden, self-interested pleas of special interest lobbyists. To share these stories is my obligation and I hope, as you believe in healthcare for all, that it is your obligation too.
So: please get the word out NOW! I say now, because the Walk is closing fast on DC – on schedule to arrive on Sunday, July 26th. There is very little time to build the critical mass necessary to deliver this message with the force and intensity it deserves. So … please RT (on Twitter), invite friends to the FB group, email your network, contact your Representatives & Senators, reach out to media contacts you have.
