So, I have time to think after my second cup of coffee.
Guys, I really think we need to organize. We do a really good job of communicating with each other (and a lot of us to the Canadian media!!), but I think that if we were to organize the right way, we could put all our collective energy toward accelerating what we need to happen.
We need people contacting the regulatory bodies in their respective countries (including provinces and states, as applicable). We need people looking at new angles and organizing communications and responses (I like Fogdweller's suggestion to contact the insurance companies on another thread). We need people putting together local, regional and national fundraisers so that we can directly fund the programs that the MS Society ignored.
I think we have an incredible amount of drive and energy on this board- I think we just need to get a little more "put together" so that we can drive all the energy in the same direction.
A good analogy is the use of a garden hose. If you have your nozzle set to the fine spray setting (where the water is diffused), you will get things wet. But when you set it to the strongest setting, you concentrate the stream of water and can really douse things fast.
I'd like us to focus on becoming a power washer.
