    MA is searching for people who are talented in various skills. This is a positive effort which can expand the effort from handing out flyers to writing articles, organizing events, creating marketing efforts, scheduling speaking engagements, etc.

    I hope other states will follow MA’s lead and get and use the talents of their followers.

  2. Lisa A. Slaughter says:

    When I wrote to the Mayor of Houston’s office this was the response that I received:

    “Our policies and guidelines state that all requests must pertain to Houston based organizations, events in Houston or citizens being honored in Houston.” And, “Our policies were put in place for budgetary reasons, among others. Many cities have much more strict policies or they don’t offer proclamations.”

    Perhaps their response would be would be different if someone they care about became a target to this awful emotional and psychological abuse.

  3. Good heavens, thank you so much for posting this! It is going to help when I am thinking about going to Regal Tall City in Fort Wayne! I am from Trenton so I am not familiar with Midland. Next time I see my family will be much better! Wonderful!
