Open Letter to Sue Paterno

Since nobody reads the fanshots...

Here's a link to an open letter to Sue Paterno. The author does a fantastic job of saying what so many of us would like to say, but maybe can't articulate: http://onwardstate.com/community/dear-suepa/

I'm not sure what I can do...unlike Derry, I don't know the Paternos, so although I agree with everything the author wrote, the idea of being a shoulder to cry on is highly unlikely. So I've donated to both THON & Special Olympics PA in JoePa's name, sure, and signed petitions to restructure the board of trustees, vote for anyone other than Corbett, etc. But those just feel like short-term actions.

So today, I'm asking myself, "How can I have an impact?" Because I think using that as a guiding principle is how JoePa lived his life. If I can even make 1/100th of the difference that he did, I'll consider that a success. I'm not sure how it's going to happen, but (to paraphrase a great man), if I keep plugging away, good things will happen.

Anyway, thanks to everyone at BSD. You're an island of sanity.
