Stepping down
« on: August 17, 2016, 02:36:29 PM »
The last few years have been some of the most satisfying and meaningful of my life, but I have decided to step down as Assistant State Coordinator for Georgia, effective January 1  of the coming year. It has been a privilege and an honor to have gotten to know so many stalwart Patriots and to have helped shape the Appleseed program in Georgia, but I feel it is time for me to cede the position. As for who will take over the job, Georgia is blessed with a deep stable of very capable people, any one of whom could do an outstanding job. And I stand ready to help make the transition as seamless as possible. I will continue to be involved in Appleseed of course. And I cherish the memories we have shared. Thank you all for the support, the help, and the inspiration. And may Liberty increase forever!
"It is an indispensable duty, my brethren, which we owe to God and our country, to rouse up and bestir ourselves, and, being animated with a noble zeal for the sacred cause of liberty, to defend our lives and fortunes, even to the shedding of the last drop of blood....

While DrJohn will surely bristle at the notion, there can be no discussion of GA's success without his name being mentioned. This is not my opinion, but simply hard fact.

Another hard fact is that GA will very soon be in need of someone to fill his rather large shoes. While this job is best suited to someone retired with a decent income, I have seen it done well by people who work too much and have not two nickles to rub together. So who among the GA cadre will step up? Let us not wait until the twelfth hour to resolve this important matter.

Thank you brother for all the hard work you've put into Appleseed.

I've started to reply to this thread a half a dozen times with something appropriate to thank John for all he has done. The fact is, there is nothing I can say that would display the depth of my gratitude or the selflessness of his actions.  So to John, my mentor, my friend and my brother I just say thank you and Cheers to you sir. Hope to see you soon and share an adult beverage with you in celebration for all you've done.
