Hi everyone we are planning on doing a letter writing campaign this weekend. We would love for everyone to participate. Katieb has written an excellent form letter that all of us can use. The addresses are provided below and this link is our discussion we had in Activism. http://www.buy2k.net/lungcancersurvivor ... php?t=4630

I forgot to mention, don't forgot to email your local media also(TV and print) and any other organization you think may benefit our cause.

Thank you everyone,

If I Could Catch a Rainbow:

If I could catch a rainbow, I would do it just for you, And share with you its beauty, On the days you’re feeling blue. If I could build a mountain, You call your very own, A place to find serenity, A place to be alone. If I could take your troubles, I would toss them in the sea, But all these things I’m finding, Are impossible for me. I cannot build a mountain, Or catch a rainbow fair, But let me be what I know best A friend that’s always there. Author Unknown

Norme, You simply put mouse on first line that you want to copy. When you put mouse on first word you then scroll down while holding the mouse button. Your words will be highlighted. Now (why highlighted) go to top of screen to EDIT. When you click EDIT you will see COPY. Click there. Now go to your letter that you are composing. In the space where you write the letter...click one time so your curser will be there as if you were going to start writing). Now go to EDIT at top again and click PASTE. You got it. You can use the PASTE over again untill you click on COPY again. This helps if you are writing more than one letter. Hope I did not loose you anywhere. Now LET'S WRITE THOSE E-MAILS AND FLOOD THEIR MAILBOX.

Repeat this process next week. Lung Cancer has been greatly outshadowed by the world events of the day. Yes lung cancer will most like take 1000 x the numbers of Americans killed in Iraq, but again we will lose the implication because of world opinion. It is sad that Americans have had to die for this cause. It is also sad that 435 Americans die of lung cancer each day.

Continue to write your letters. Unfortunately the liitle blip that lung cancer put on the radar screen, this weekend, has been outshadowed by a hug blip on the horizon. Hopefully, if the little blips continue, we may get someone's attention.

It was a great idea, but we got blind sided by a BIG world event.

so, save your emails and email addresses and do it again next weekend. Hopefully it will be a slow news weekend.
