October 13, 2006 - TIME SENSITIVE: I created a new petition earlier this week that needs to be printed off and mailed by November 29th, so I am trying to get as many signatures as possible by November 28th. I initially asked for 1,000 signatures and what has happened so far this week has exceeded my wildest imagination! We are already over halfway there in less than a week! Please take a moment to view the petition at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/138397192.
I'd appreciate it if you would sign your name and leave a comment for the judge handing the case of a six year old boy that was killed by a drunk driver, while riding his bike on the sidewalk. The man, a "prominant member of the community" was let go, with only two ticketable offenses and a promise to return for an arraignment on December 5th.
Please help the judge in making the correct decision in this case. Thank you in advance!

Check out my other Shares, too. I try to send at least a few a week. I also try to read all my friend's Shares, so if you've posted something important lately, please pop me a note to make sure I see it!
Please note: While I love getting friend requests, please take a moment and hit the "introduce yourself" button when you send me a friend request. Let me know how you found me or why you'd like to be friends? I probably won't hit "accept" without one, unless I recognize you from a group I'm in. Thanks! :-)

||How I describe myself? Wow - how about multi-faceted? I am into so many things, I don't think I can be "classified" into one group. There's a lot of political causes that I'm involved with to varying levels. Moreso lately... I've been an activist since I literally stumbled upon my first protest march at age 16 (Ceasar Chavez and the United Farm Workers). I used to homeschool my daughter from 1996 up until 2005, when she decided to try out public high school. I'm still very much involved in the homeschooling movement, and own/moderate two e-lists for homeschooling, as well as being the county-wide and national media contact for our support group (www.geocities.com/homeschoolalt). I'm told that I'm fun to be around, that I am a loyal friend, that I have a great (altho sometimes strange) sense of humor, that I'm strong emotionally (altho I tend to disagree - I just put on a good front - lol), and I'm a "people person", which really helps out in my job, too. I wear my heart on my sleeve, which can be a good and bad thing. I keep secrets. I like to help people out with challenges they are facing, and am not shy about asking for help with mine. I'm the youngest of seven kids! I love animals and have quite a menagerie in my house. Probably my only two regrets are these: 1. That I didn't believe in myself enough to follow a path I really wanted - med school - to become a psychiatrist, and 2. That I didn't have more children - at my ex's insistance, not mine. There's tons else about me, but this is long enough already - ask me questions! Invite me to be your friend!
