Margaret's trip with Breast Cancer

Playing the comment game at Michele’s blog, I stumbled across this blog entry. It particularly struck me, and I posted a comment there, which I am posting here as well.

Hi. Michele sent me. I'm glad she did. Great writing.

Your comment, "Are you there God? It's me Megan", together with references to doggie cancer made me put together a couple different thoughts.

Recently, a good friend discovered she has breast cancer. Stop by and read her blog at My trip with breast cancer.

I cannot help but wonder how many women like Kimberly read Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret years ago as they struggled with their adolescent bodies and their relationship with God, and are now facing new struggles with their bodies and their relationship with God.

A Public Relations campaign

(Originally published at Greater Democracy)

As much as I dislike thinking about political campaigns in terms of advertising, marketing, public relations and all that stuff, the P.R. aspect remains very important. Two recent blog entries have helped me rethink my relation to P.R. as it relates to political campaigns.

Richard Edelman asks “Is Public Relations Ready for Discontinous Change?” and Elizabeth Albrycht writes about how ‘Collaboration Requires Contribution’. Both posts bring up important issues for political campaigns that can help make the P.R. aspect of political campaigns more palatable to grassroots activists.
