Protect Internet Freedom


I rarely reblog and today I am doing what I can to protect our access to the internet. Where would we be as blogggers, how would we know each other and share our stories and images if it were not for the internet?

We can make our voices heard by following these three easy steps to submit official comment to the FCC:

*Fill in the form carefully; It’s less user friendly and impossible to fill in by phone. It took me about a minute on my laptop.

MAY OUR VOICES BE HEARD!!

      • I am fond of saying everything changes, nothing stays the same and I refuse to ever have hope stripped away. This current regime in the US is nothing nice but it will pass. What we have to do is keep adding our voices to the pile however little we think it is doing. The weight of water will finally overcome the wall 😊
