We Must Stick Together

I have been watching the 4-H issue unfold all day. In fact by all day I mean since early this morning. I too am heartbroken, I think more because we have to go through this. I am choosing to give 4-H the benefit of the doubt and I am hoping that this was an oversight. Today's issue has however, demonstrated something that I think we need to be very careful about. Destruction from the inside out. HSUS knows that we are a very interlinked industry, they know that we are people of passion, and they know that they cant come over our castle walls so to speak. I think that we need to be very cognisant of the fact that we have got to stick together. Name calling among industry leaders, inappropriate language usage, pitchforking and burning our own at the stake are all things that will be destructive to this industry, and that is their goal right? They want us to fail, they want to weaken us and take advantage of us in our weak points. We need to band together, work together and succeed together. Individually we are strong, together we are mighty. Let's remain mighty!


  1. Thank you, I needed a pick me up after watching since early this morning, too.

  2. Thanks for posting this, I to am pretty upset about this but am going to give 4-H the benefit of the doubt! I've been involved in 4-H since I was a small child and even today I volunteer for the good of the kids, 4-H means a lot to me and is part of who I am, I hope this mess is set straight!
