Thank-You Notes - Sun. 3/10-3/16Submitted by wistfulthinker on Mon, 03/11/2013 - 00:58
For quite some time, I've been wishing someone would post a weekly bit highlighting one or a couple of folks who deserve a great big thank-you from the liberty crowd. I kinda believe that whole catch-more-bees-with-honey business and try to shoot off a thank-you when I notice someone in the public sphere doing something courageous.
Alas, I only manage once in a while. And no one else seems to be doing it for me. Drat!
So I'm promising to do a suggestion for a "Thank-You Note" most Sundays. My idea is that folks who are in the pen fighting need to hear from us -- and the more of us the better.
I will do my best to research each target well and to provide background links so that you can research them easily.
It would be awesome to flood folks drudging toward liberty with thanks, and I hope you will join me.
Our first Thank-You Note target is:
Star Parker, founder of CURE -- Center for Urban Renewal and Education. She and her staff deserves our thanks.
Three weeks ago, Parker organized a national press conference with prominent figures from the black community to speak out against gun control legislation currently being considered on Capitol Hill. A DP member posted a link to the conference right after it was posted to YouTube.
Watch either a condensed or the full version here: http://www.urbancure.org/mbarticle.asp?id=290&t=Blacks-speak....
Parker and CURE, the nations's largest black conservative think tank, is in the mist of fighting to educate Americans about the ways that gun control targets, both historically and currently, black Americans.
Please send her a big THANKS and encourage her to keep fighting.

If you want a template, here's what I sent:
Ms. Parker and CURE Staff,
Thank you so very much for the work you are doing to educate the American public about the historical and current issues surrounding gun rights and black Americans.
I watched the press conference CURE held a couple of weeks ago and was so impressed and learned so much.
I wish to tip my hat to your efforts.
*If you send a thank-you, please post here to let everyone know and to keep the post alive. Feel free to post the text of your own thank you in case anyone is shopping for the best template.
