    Leif took the words right out of my mouth .. although I'm not going on national television!!! But a great idea to contact media ... get the public awareness activated. Paralysis can happen to anybody ... we're all living proof. Everyone should have a vested interested in this.

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Cool The Role of an Elected Official

    leschinsky,

    I hear what you are asking but I have my own version of what it is all about. This is the United states Of America and I truly believe that on this issue these people represent the whole country. The CRPA and the funding and support of stem cell research isn't the same as supporting Native American casinos in your state or nfastrucuture improvements like the BIG DIG. These are issues that directly or indirectly affect every citizen in this country. If a politican can't see or understand this than they do not deserve to be in an elected position. (Think Global Warming) Their role is to support the greater good for all citizens and to secure a safe and healthy environment for everyone.

    Don't let them send you away with the message to call your state representative, that is a cop out. Lets go get em!

    Sure you are, and this is not national television, just CNN world news. My recorder is warming up as we speak so I can send a copy to all the politicians over here. Don’t worry, we have just a couple of hundreds of them in our parliament - don’t know about the UK, Italy, Germany, Spain, China, India and so on tough.

    Haster Office--IL

    Hey, we need folks from IL to call HAstert's office. They are not keeping tally and urging folks to call their own Congressman. If you are from IL, please call Hastert--NOW.
    Everyone else has been great.
    Every day I wake up is a good one

    I get a kick out of calling when they're all warmed up. It's so quick and easy. 12 minutes for all those calls!

    Me: Can I speak to the person that deals with health legislation?

    Them: Sure. Your name?

    Me: Betheny Winkler

    Health Aide: How can I help you?

    Me: I'd like to encourage the Congressman to support the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Act. We finally got it out of committee and it should come up for a vote this week. It benefits more than 2 million Americans, through research, rehab and quality of life grants administered through the NIH. Please, this would help improve so many of our lives.

    Them: OK. I'll make a note of it.

    Me: Is there anything else you'd like to know about it?

    Them: No, I think we've about got that one covered.

    Me: OK, thank you very much!

    And that's how it goes...If they ask what organization, feel free to say Unite 2 Fight Paralysis if you want. You can also say grassroots advocate or volunteer advocate for the Christopher Reeve Foundation.
