Happy Easter, Everyone!

BarbaraB…
Thank you SO much for this quote:
“No one could make a greater mistake
than he who did nothing
because he could do only a little.”

(Edmund Burke)

If we all “do only a little”, imagine the progress if you look at all those “little” efforts combined.

If we each hadn’t done our little part along the way, we wouldn’t be nearly this close to achieving our goal.

Please don’t ever think “Oh, I can’t do much, so why should I bother?” Where would we be if Jeanessa had said that? If Paula Jayne and so many others had said that?

Even if you aren’t the one who found the red dress Kimmer; each of us here still can make contributions. So what if you aren’t an anti-kk blogger; each post here has furthered the thread, hasn’t it? So you don’t consider yourself a “duck”; by being here, reading and posting, you are supporting the ducks. Each time you give someone an “atta girl” or encourage someone when they have shared something they found with the list; you are helping to ensure that such searches continue. So what if you can only pull one little “weed”; just imagine how many other “weeds” that small act has prevented from popping up elsewhere? Even if you only write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper, or send an email with a few links to your local news station; stand back and look at the ripple effect you are creating. KTLA started it, FOX followed up on it, GMA joined in, and I don’t believe we’ve seen the end of it yet.

Every “little” thing done along the way has contributed to where we are today.

So, if you look at that list that John sent out, maybe you don’t have everything on it, but maybe you have one “little” piece of the puzzle. Send it to John. Don’t think someone else is going to send it. YOU send it. Did you write an email to Kimkins to complain about being banned? or to express your concerns about your hair falling out? If so, send it to John. Did you save a comment Heidi made about laxatives? Send it to John.

We can help John put this puzzle together, one “little” piece at a time. If something doesn’t “feel” or “look” right to you, speak out. Post it here. If Paula Jayne hadn’t done that 15 threads ago, what would we be reading today?

I can’t take Kimkins down by myself, and neither can you. I can only do a little; but combined with the little that you can do, and the little that each of us can do; TOGETHER we can make a difference in this fight.

Remember that even if it is only a “little”; it is still a much needed part of the big picture. Don’t discount your part in all this. Don’t be discouraged because you can “only do a little”. Every little bit helps! Every little bit is appreciated, even if no one comes out directly to offer you a pat on the back for what you’ve done; even if what you did wasn’t something you shared with the list here; even if no one may have seen you do it; we still appreciate your efforts. Thank you for being a part of the team!

Thank you to EVERYONE who has not been afraid to “only do a little”.

Happy Easter, Everyone!
