Since I started this blog (and the one called "Daily Ramblings") I've started to reach out of my comfort zone and talk to people outside my immediate circle. I've started reading blogs from other Ds advocates and become more involved - at least online. For those who don't know me, I'm a pretty private person, and I've been dealing with some personal challenges that have kept me more or less secluded for some time. (Yeah, ok, my family says I'm a hermit. lol)
Today I took a huge step, for me, and followed the advice of a fellow blogger - littlebirdsdad.com. He has designed a campaign called "8 Days for Ethan." He challenges all of us who are interested in finding some type of "Justice for Ethan" to spend 15 minutes a day for eight days and is giving us concrete steps to take.
Step one is to make connections with local media.
TODAY’S GOAL: Greater public awareness outside the DS community; at least 1 TV Station in the US – outside Frederick Maryland – reporting on #JusticeforEthan this week.
So, I had a choice - sit back and hope other people get it done, or step up and be a part of the revolution.
I have contacted several Knoxville news outlets:
- WATE - Knoxville, TN (ABC affiliate)
- WLVT - Knoxville, TN (CBS affiliate)
- WBIR - Knoxville, TN (NBC affiliate)
- Knoxnews - Kristi L. Nelson (Health reporter)
If I can do it, you can too! Please visit "8 Days for Ethan" and join in the community of concerned people everywhere trying to make a difference.
