I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has helped get this blog off the ground. I have some great allies out there in the blogosphere whose links to my site have played a major role in its success.

I also thank the RSS feed subscribers, some of whom have been with me since the very beginning.

Additionally, I’m grateful for those who have my back, from catching typos to keeping me up to date on issues I write about. They include the public servants who stand by me personally and professionally.

One of the best parts about blogging is that it links you to others in your fields of interest. It’s wonderful to connect with others who advocate for or who have worked through the same issues.

WordPress allows us bloggers to see details about how and when certain articles are being viewed, as well as how people get to the site. It gives you an idea of who’s looking and why.

You can contact me through the “comment” function if you wish to share your thoughts on an article. It will require you to leave a name and email address.

Submitting a comment doesn’t mean it will be published on this blog. I have to approve every comment. You can tell me if your thoughts are between us. There are times people just need additional resources.

Sometimes sharing what you think or how you feel, even the watered down, G-rated, generic version can really upset people.

I write to identify issues, and solve problems, and keep the same things from happening to others. I write to share my faith and my experiences, and to bring light to dark places.

Sometimes the truth can save both the perpetrators and the victims. The truth sets us free.

In a nutshell, it’s been said that what we risk reveals what we value. Blogging can be risky, but staying silent about the forces that are actively ruining people is even riskier.

Again, thank you to everyone who has helped launch Truth, Justice, and All-American Allergen-Free Apple Pie. You are appreciated!


My mother, who only went to grade three and almost never read novels, told me, “Maybe I’m just ignorant, but I thought it was a writer’s business to write the truth as she sees it. Isn’t it? What is the point of writing, why would anyone even want to do it if she’s going to just write some nonsense to please someone else?” –Janet Campbell Hale
