Thanks Terry. What makes it difficult for people to grasp what I'm trying to do is that I'm a small, non profit, with a pretty invisible set of leaders and we're trying to have an impact on the third largest urban area in the country. If the CEO of a major corporation, the council of Mayors, the Governor, or someone like Oprah had their name on all of the things I write, more people would understand and join in because they are used to high profile leaders taking on these global roles.

With the Internet, a small group of people, with no particular social or civic standing, can make an effort to change the world. If you can bring people from your network, and they bring people from their networks, we won't be a small group for ever.

At this point, we are cash-poor, because of the impact of the economy. This makes everything more difficult, and makes survival a question. Expanding the pool of believers, will help expand the pool of donors, too.

Hi Terry,

I hope that you and members of your network will help us with our work, and will borrow some of our ideas for the work you're doing.
