GUEST,Big Mick Big Mick, You Inspired Me! (10) RE: Big Mick, You Inspired Me! 08 Nov 00


Let me first say Thank You for your very kind words.

Secondly, you give me far to much credit. My role in directing the Michigan campaign in the first half of the year and acting as an advisor/ramrod in the last part was one of many important pieces that contributed to a very interesting campaign. I am sincere when I tell you that every time I walk into a campaign office and see someone volunteering their time to answer phones; every time I see a bunch of folks "knock/drop" a neighborhood, or staff a phone bank, and I know they are doing it for no other reason than it being a reflection of their values and their desire to do the right thing, I am humbled. One of the advantages of experience is that you realize how dependant you are on others for any successes you may be fortunate enough to experience.

With regard to my "role model" status, I find it embarassing. I have far too many warts for that. It just seems to me that one should embrace a set of values in a pro active way. I believe that ones life always stands for something. What that something is, is dependant on what we are willing to embrace. I see heroes every day and try to act in a way that brings honor to their struggle. I hope to shite that I do. Could we talk about something else?..................anybody got a spare jar of the vile black stuff? I've a t'irst.
