Day17 Wednesday 09/15/10

I ran 3.2 miles today. It has been a busy week and time is moving a lot faster than it did three weeks ago before I began this engagement. The honeymoon of this new marriage is coming to a close and it is time to see how committed I really am to the cause.

For the first time I am realizing potential faults and presumptions that I might have in conveying my message and the goal of this blog. What I want to avoid is simply restating the news, which you read earlier in the day. I would also like to avoid being mistaken for a journalist. I have no obligation to unbiased commentary and I will be extremely judgmental. If a diverse amount of people examine this blog then I will be labeled in many different ways, both positively and negatively, but that is a good thing because this is still America.

The point I am trying to make is that this is not a news channel. If I appear to be pandering to like-minded people it is only because there are so many of us out there and we like to stand up for what we believe in. I have neither the time nor the energy to dig up facts and research articles in an effort to persuade people to see things the way I, and so many others, do. The goal of this blog is to show that one more person among millions of others is just trying to stand up and be heard. And because our government won’t listen to the majority of its citizens’ opinions on issues they undermine and do as they please with, I am going to run 2,080 miles and blog about it every day even if there is only a one-billionth of a chance that it might make our government realize that it should listen to the people it represents. I have no intention of converting anyone’s political beliefs. My intention is to band conservatives together so we can realize our true strength and numbers as American citizens in order to make a difference.

2,040.6 miles to go.
