"Hold the Line" for NC Children Virtual Advocacy Day
I am not a political being (it usually makes me tired) but sometimes a cause comes around that is just a good cause. So when one of you blog-readers sent me this information, I felt the need to share.
Today, the 18th of May 2010, is "Hold the Line" for North Carolina Children Virtual Advocacy Day. I know, that's a mouthful! What's it mean? The best way I can describe it is to provide you this quote:"On [this] day, we’re asking all North Carolinians to take to their Twitter accounts, Facebook, and blogs, and post messages asking legislators to “Hold the Line” and continue to invest in programs that promote the healthy growth and development of young children."
With our government pulled in many directions and with many issues to address, it is important that we ask our local government to remember the investment in our future: our kids. So today is a day to pool virtual and social networking resources (don't knock it, it is can be powerful) and remind our legislators that it really is about the kids.

And thanks, Vivian.
