Don't be afraid and think you're not good enough to make a difference - if you try you will be amazed at the difference you can make...so if I can do it, truly anyone can. The message is much more important than I am.

Pamela I want to thank you for your post. It's like you wrote it specifically for me. I'm at a point where I'm feeling pushed (at various levels) to make a difference in my community. I've been noticing the need for improvement in various areas (like our library's lack of policy on the consumption of food and drink to name one) and although typically reluctant to stand up and "make waves" decided that it was time to contribute and be a part of the solution. It started with one letter and already I'm seeing the difference that one person can make. The added bonus is that I'm not only helping my son -- but all other allergic children and their parents too (nice added bonus!). I kind of chuckle at the thought -- but what else would make me want to stand up and try to effect positive change more than my son's health and well being? So here I am -- I agree with you -- the message is much more important that I am. I know not every parent of an allergic child feels the need or desire to assist or advocate and I can't speak for everyone -- but for me, I know my son's diagnosis is part of a "bigger picture". Thanks again for your words. :)
