I have been absent from my cozy little internet community of late, and will be returning with some regularity once I have my computer and internet access restored.
I do want to put out the word that I will be more active in the season to come- particularly to those who joined me this fall, when we had our little meet up in Anderson. I have been delinquent in my efforts in this past year- in part due to my new employment, which makes it difficult to engage in my activism. They have a no weapons policy.
Because of the budget crisis, it has been announced that local law enforcement agencies will be reducing patrols. Announced to even those whose enterprise is wholly criminal, that they do not have the funding to keep officers on the beat.
Criminal activity has been reported on an uptick, and blamed on our souring economy.
I believe it is our civic duty not only to protect ourselves, but our community at large as well.
It is with these facts in mind, that I'd like to take this activism toward community service- whether that is to do defense walks or community or highway litter pick-ups- I have not yet decided. It may well be a combination of events and activities.
Drop me an email- or if you already have my mobile phone number- drop me a line. I would appreciate some imput.
