Positive Global Change

Bree has nominated me for the Bloggers for the Positive Global Change Award that started on Angelo's blog. I read the description on the Climate of Our Future blog because I wasn't quite sure what I did to deserve the nomination. I certainly would never place myself in the same category as the environmental heroes at MINA or Beautify CNMI. Then I read this:

There are a wide range of bloggers on the Web who, like Atlas from mythology, have taken the weight of the world upon their shoulders and are trying to build awareness among their readership in order to create a more sustainable and enlightened future.
I'm not very good at authentically complimenting myself, so I'll just thank Bree for the honor and pay it forward. I nominate Bruce and Jane even though I know Jane doesn't do the tag thing. I also nominate Hope in the "hope" that she'll start a movement at her new school, and the soon-to-be elected Student Council at GES because I know they'll take the challenge. Now, please follow the rules:

1. When you get tagged, write a post with links to up to 5 blogs that you think are trying to change the world in a positive way.
2. In your post, make sure you link back to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Leave a comment or message for the bloggers you’re tagging, so they know they’re now part of the meme.
4. Optional: Proudly display the “Bloggers For Positive Global Change” award badge with a link to the post that you write up.

You're really nice, Boni, and make me cry with your nomination (especially since I'm being pilloried over at Jeff's). I'll think about the tag thing. Thanks.

Thanks for the nomination, Boni. I'll work on it in a few days as I have a few other items on the table right now.

On another topic...I have been unable to get onto your blog for 3 or 4 days until now. Have tried several times but came up as 'non-responsive' each time. Anyone else having this prob or have I once again offended the blogger gremlins living in my own computer?
Blogger mommy is a good idea. What about equal treatment? Blogger Dadas?

Congratulations! The excerpt (sp?) you posted is spot on. That's you. :-)

And check out my post...I, Mommy.

Casually being implied as an ignorant racist unfit for his job is pilloried, not you being shown a liar for misrepresenting those circumstances.

Silly Socrates would like to congratulate borego for thinking.

I accept your congratulations. It isn't easy, but it's also so very hard.
