Some very nice people with the best of intentions have told me there is absolutely no chance whatsoever that this website, that this campaign will have any effect at all. They want to know why I continue.
I tell them a story. In 1995 when Governor Bredesen was dismantling TennCare 24 people, most of them sick or disabled had a sit-in in his office. They stayed for over 70 days.
One of the leaders of the sit-in was a friend of Linda and mine. I asked him why. They knew the chance of changing Bredesens mind was zero. I remember what he said, “We just want someone else to know. We matter and what they are doing is wrong. This is our testimony…”
This is mine.
