The following was issued to a wide group of recipients in order to bring harmony to our united cause to protect whistleblowers who protect the public. It has been overwhelmingly accepted!

Each of us has a different approach and idea on how to reach our common objective to protect whistleblowers and expose corruption. We are united in our desires to further the health, safety and welfare of the people. I have great respect for each person in our community and recognize their contributions. I may not agree 100% with what a person states, but I will defend their right to say it. One thing we know is strength comes from diversity.
Conflict and dissent often create change. Transparency and open communications help us work better, together. Our groups have different strengths and abilities to communicate. The greatest leaders and most humble members all contribute uniquely. Some do this quietly while others use big voices. What’s important is that all are heard. Especially the voices of whistleblowers who have done so much, for so many. Without them, we would wither. Therefore, I suggest this is a good time to recommit our efforts in our common cause.
A friend sent me the below link to me this morning. Although he is far away, he must have heard my pleas for unity and inspiration. Thank you each for all for your hard work and ongoing support!
