Well I just noticed I am just a day or two away from 15,000 seeds to the vine. I wanted to take this time to say thank you.
I initially found Newsvine at a time when I was going through a very difficult time. My 4 year-old son (now 9) had just been sexually abused at his preschool and all I had was anger and wanted desperately to let the world know the name of the bastard that had victimized my boy. I have stayed through the healing process and continued to make these crimes the focus of my activity.
Through it all I have met a lot of good people here along with a few asshats, but to those who have followed my effort and helped get the word out, THANK YOU! Whether you know it or not, your friendship has kept me from jumping off the Gandy Bridge more than once. I can only hope I have been the friend here you hoped I would be.
Who knew you could stay out of the political storm and still make it to the top ten on the leader-board...LOL
