Good to be back.
The Coalition of Alzheimer's families decided not to continue to blog over the Christmas week out of respect for what the season represents. We sincerely hope that it was a blessing for all.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish all a happy, safe, and prosperous New Year.
As we approach the end of 2010, let us remember what our strife this past year has been about...regardless what Mr. Angle, and his BO say about the Coalition, or Rev. Martinez, or the Gracedale Employees, or the Union...it is not about any of those elements, it has always been about defending the rights of the residents of Gracedale, both present and future.
NorCo, make no mistake about it, all that the demon seed Angle has been trying to do by slandering our group is taking the focus off of the real issue SELLING GRACEDALE.
Does it really matter who makes up this well intentioned Coalition? Of course not. But, if Angle can distract us by shifting our focus to the empty hand, while hiding the other, he will ultimately accomplish his goal of selling the NorCo Gem - Gracedale.
When we say hiding the other hand, keep in mind that by the power of his evil ways, Angle has lead astray the entire council, who unfortunately for the County have not opened their eyes to his wickedness.
Consider that even Councilman Rev. Dowd who once suggested that we may be moving too fast with this issue, and that Gracedale should perhaps be given at least another year or two to restructure and get back on track, has us now wondering if he will be part of the demise of Gracedale, and of the Widows and the Orphans that reside there. We believe that rev. Dowd has been conned and mesmerized by Angle's illusions, and we appeal to his greater Christian judgement. In the mean time, Angle will continue to hide the truth not only from The People, but also from many of the Council members as well.
THE NUMBERS - As our deadline January 17, 2011 approaches, let us continue to push forward. On Sunday, January 2, 2011, the coalition will have a notary at Gracedale to continue to receive the petitions as they come in. Please bring in any petitions, regardless of how many names are on the petition. The important thing at this juncture is to begin collecting all petitions to understand exactly how many names we have, and how many more we need. As previously reported, we currently have 5000+ names that we know of on hand. Without having received our last drives numbers yet, we can only anticipate we have at least another 1k from that drive. if that is the case, we should be over 16000, short by about 3966.
NorCo VOTERS, the time is near. As our spokesperson would say - "We must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially the evil that distracts us. We must run the race that lies ahead of us and never give up, staying focused on the source and goal of our faith".
With just 17 days left to get the numbers we need, we know that we won't be able to do it without your help. So please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to offer any assistance you can in this very noble cause.
...WE WILL NOT, AND MUST NOT GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT
