My reflections and musings on the struggle to leave a Christ-shaped impression on the world of law and public policy.

A Shout Out to the Legislators

"It's not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt

If you have 5 or 10 minutes today or tomorrow, please take the time to thank the legislators who were "actually in the arena" for us on H.B.112. You don't need to say anything extraordinary--a simple thank you will show them that you care about the bill and appreciate their support of it. You could just say, "Thank you for supporting H.B.112." E-mail addresses for those who supported the effort are as follows: - Delegate Bob Marshall - chief patron - Delegate Ben Cline - co-patron - Delegate Todd Gilbert - co-patron - Delegate Clay Athey - co-patron; voted for the bill in subcommittee - Delegate Jackson Miller - voted for the bill in subcommittee - Delegate Charles Carrico - co-patron - Delegate James Morefield - co-patron - Delegate Brenda Pogge - co-patron
