Silence a Gift

Good Morning Neighbor:

I did the unthinkable this week.  I shutdown my computer, my cell phone, my t.v., closed my books and I rescheduled all of my work appointments.   For the past two days,  I literally spent my time in silence from the time I took my son to school to the time he got home.  And, what a gift these past two days have been - it forced me to enjoy nature - it forced me to pray and meditate.  I wanted further clarity as to what the next step in life for me was about.  As many of you know, I decided to run for State House of Representatives last May and now it is truly time to put my name on the dotted line.   I was led to understand exactly what was the gift and the function I brought to the State House Table.   And, this is what I was given:

My gift is bringing people together that are equipped with different talents and facilitating their function as a whole to accomplish a task for the higher good.  

My function is to provide leadership that brings about positive outcomes - especially when facing circumstances that may appear on the surface to be too difficult to overcome for the individual and the community.

We are facing such critical times ahead and I find it no coincidence that I am running for office at a time when the Environment is on top of the Georgia House list.  I am so disappointed that our state officials did not do more to make sure that our Water Crisis was truly in hand.  I am also very disheartened that the Gas Crisis was not dealt with this session and here we sit with gas and groceries at an all time high.  You can absolutely count on me to be the one to be knocking on political doors next session to bring legislators together to create legislation that truly helps our community and State in the above matters.  After I am elected in July, I will call a Town Hall Meeting soon after and we will begin as a community to create a list of priorities that we would like to see championed at the State Capitol in 2009.

I am truly committed to making a difference in Georgia as we have here in the South Fulton and Fayette Community.  We stand as a shining example of what can be accomplished.  And, as I sign on the dotted line today know that all of you are in my heart and that I have absolute clarity as to my role in service to our community.

Your neighbor,

As Margaret Mead once said:

Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
