    consider writing even more in-depth about the process. Unwrap it in segments or installments. It is a wonderful inspirational journey. I want it to be a template for activism.

    Often activists and budding activists just need a vision and road map to become really productive. This is a perfect road map. And one that can be adjusted to fit many situations.

    The coordination here between groups, individuals, institutions and government is absolutely beautiful. And you've about it wonderfully.

    Please consider writing more about how it happened and how you did it. Even step-by-step. We don't have enough of this. We need this!

    Thank you! Thank you! I am sitting here crying. I am so impressed and excited about what you have done.

      I'm working now on a much more complicated effort involving Walgreens and Merck (in addition to all of the above) to immunize a lot of poor people against shingles.

      It's harder to do because the vaccine must be kept at -2 degrees F at all times and requires specialized freezers. Also, it costs $225 a pop with copays as high as $175. A wonderful man from Merck, and another from Walgreens, are helping me to figure out how to do this without sending our seniors into penury.

      I'm hoping I can get it done by January. So as I move forward, I will continue to diary it.

      And even though it all went wrong I'll stand before the Lord of Song with nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah! -Leonard Cohen .................@laurenreichelt
