Re: Great AP Article - Wiccan Awakening From: David
The Pagan Veterans Headstone Campaign
There are representatives from both ATC and IIMM on this list. You’re right; it’s not a question of who has done more or who was first and I don’t believe either one of those groups will take exception to what Circle’s part in this has contributed to moving things forward. This is a very goal oriented mission and just because the other groups are for whatever reason unable or unwilling to deal with the effort it takes to produce press releases or get them published, conduct interviews, prepare for the legal aspect of this and stay in the public eye does not mean that the ones who are managing to do it should stop or lessen the push out of fear of stepping on someone else’s toes.
It is incredibly expensive and time consuming to be involved in this effort the way Selena, Roberta and the Lady Liberty League has been. The articles have not always been accurate or flattering. To endure that frustration while fielding cries of “media whore” and other vile accusations from other Pagans does nothing to help achieve the goal.
There’s not always time to make decisions by committee especially since it is not always possible to share all of the information we have, publicly. We will do what it takes to win for as long as it takes and because of the front line position we have we naturally have a better view of how to go about that. I think that achieving the goal is something we can all work toward, recognizing that we may all do it in different ways. Tearing one another down lends nothing to the effort.
