"I am only one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
What I can do, I should do.
And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do."
by:
Edward Everett Hale
(1822-1909) American author, historian and Unitarian minister

    Years ago, concerning freedom, law and the Constitution, I went to court regularly, I gave seminars, I participated in media excerpts, I spoke to individuals every chance I could, etc. so today, I still run into people that have awaken to their awful situation because, I could do something. Snowdon (among multiples of whistle blowers) is only one.
