    This pic really takes me back “to the day”. There was certainly a lot of advocacy on campuses that time. The air was always full of electricity.

    Your’s is a blog of much interest to me – I will be back often and have added you to my blogroll.

    Much obliged for your WW visit. It was a great day!
