Don't 'Do Nothing'

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

My friends, I try to stay out of the political arena with my blog, because, well politics = boring, IMHO.

But this is too important to sit idly by and do nothing as the above quote (often misattributed to Edmund Burke as I have recently learned) says.

Read this, then sign the petition.

Whether you homeschool or not, the freedom to choose the way YOUR children should be educated is on the line. It is a slippery slope my friends. Don’t let the government begin to slide down it.

Because I am not American, I won't sign, but am glad you are getting the word out!

Hi! Great blog! I am Kathy and I am a homeschooling mom in California. I found your blog accidentally following a link on the March 4th post at Falling Like Rain. Coincidence? I think not. I have been wondering what the rest of the homeschooling world has been thinking about this mess. Your post is a great encouragement to me. I have been a homeschooler for 13 years in 3 states and never experienced anything like this before. I understand that Texas went through something similar in the 80’s?
Thank you for posting the petition and please, please pray for us. It’s been a bit tense out here on the left coast :-) You are appreciated more than you could know.
